Nutrient Platform is a cross-sectoral network of Dutch organisations that believe in a pragmatic approach towards nutrient recycling. The future of nutrient reclycling is discussed during a special presentation and panel discussion of members of the Nutrient Platform on November 7 at 13:15hrs. The presentation takes place at the NL Lounge theater at the Aquatech Amsterdam trade fair.
While the global demand for phosphorus and other nutrients is increasing, the reserves are decreasing. In addition, these reserves are concentrated in only a handful of countries. The potential impact on worldwide food security is enormous.
Frontrunners from the water, agriculture and waste sectors, and the chemical industry have joined forces to close nutrient cycles. The Nutrient Platform, initiated by the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP), is working together with the Government of the Netherlands, businesses, knowledge institutes, and NGOs to accelerate the transition towards sustainable nutrient management by creating a market for recycled nutrients.
Nutrient Recycling: Looking back and looking forwards – Where do we go from here?
During the presentation and subsequent panel discussion, the speakers will address the legal framework, the technological challenges, the opportunities, and the innovations for short to medium term, that come into play with regards to nutrient recycling.
