3rd BioSC Spotlight: Phosphorus recovery and cycling
The third BioSC Spotlight „Phosphorus recovery and cycling for an independent and sustainable bioeconomy“ takes place
on 15. June 2018
at the Otto-Bayer-Saal, RWTH Aachen, Worringerweg 1-2, 52074 Aachen.
The re-use of the essential plant nutrient Phosphor is of great importance due to its unequal and limited global distribution, the deposition of phosphate in soil and water and the entry of heavy metals into food chains by mineral P fertilization. At the 3 rd BioSC Spotlight, guests from academia and industry as well as BioSC members will present their latest research and discuss current developments and challenges of phosphorus recovery and cycling.
Keynote: Dr. Rainer Schnee, Budenheim KG / Deutsche Phosphor-Plattform e.V., Board of Directors
• Luxury uptake of phosphate by microalgae and cyanobacteria
• Phytases for phosphate recovery from plant residues
• Phosphate recycling in wastewater treatment
• Enzyme engineering & development
• Phosphate detection by Raman spectroscopy
Participation is free of charge. Registration is needed as places are limited. Please register until 25. May 2018. For further information please visit the event’s website.
