11 June 2014, ATB Workshop „Phosphorus for agriculture – Strategies for a finite resource“

Phosphorus is an essential nutrient for plants, animals and humans. The global stocks of the resource are limited and restricted to a few regions of the world. 

In this sense, it is of great interest to increase efficiency of application and close phosphorus cycles at regional level.

How can we identify existing, previously unused phosphorus resources?

What potential for P-recovery offer sewage and waste streams?

How can they be utilized for agriculture?

The workshop will be conducted within the framework of the joint project ELaN (www.elan-bb.de) funded by BMBF and is aimed at participants from academia, business, government and the public.

The aim of the workshop is to 
• introduce and discuss different approaches to P-recovery from the perspective of research and application, 
•  to explore the perspectives of P-recovery in terms of scientific and economic approaches, and 
• to deepen existing and stimulate new cooperation. 
• Contributions will be published in our series "Bornimer Reports on Agricultural Engineering".

Launch of the German Phosphorus Platform

Under the patronage of the German Minister of the Environment, the German Phosphorus Platform will be launched on 15 Nov 2013 at the Representation of the State of Bavaria to the German National Government in Berlin. The Bavarian State Minister of the Environment and Consumer Protection, Dr Marcel Huber, will be joined by well-respected representatives from research and industry in inaugurating the DPP. The parties are convening to make a "joint declaration" of their support for the objectives and tasks of this new organization in bringing politicians, scientists, producers and users to the same table. The objective is to achieve more responsible use of the element phosphorus, which is both vital to life and critical at the same time. Arnould Passenier, President at European Sustainable Phosphorus Platform (ESPP), will also be in attendance.
