Last 20th of September, CATAR, NEIKER, AZTI and BETA presented their respective technological approaches in the framework of SEA2LAND project at the Environmental Sustainable Nutrient Initiative (ESNI) Conference. Each partner presented their biorefineries for obtaining different products like bio-based fertilizers, protein hydrolysates or biostimulants from fishery and aquaculture wastes.
The Conference aimed to raise awareness about the benefits of nutrient resource recovery from different sources. However, not only researchers were involved in the conference, but also policymakers and industry representatives who shared their points of view about the current legal, economic and environmental barriers to the application of the products recovered. Besides, other European projects like Fertimanure, Nutri2Cycle, Walnut, EU4Algae, etc. were involved in the conference and a fruitful discussion took place about all the aspects of the nutrient recovery processes.
