Circular approaches to phosphorus
From research to deployment
This report constitutes a summary of presentations and discussions which took place at the workshop ‘Circular approaches to phosphorus: from research to deployment’ held in Berlin on 4 March 2015. The workshop was jointly organised by the European Commission (DG Research & Innovation), the European Sustainable Phosphorus Platform (ESPP) and the P-REX project. The workshop aimed to bring together research and demonstration projects on phosphorus recovery and recycling from across Europe, with industry practitioners and experts, to: enable contact between the different projects in order to... exchange information, transfer experience and build synergies, take stock of research and demonstration projects and related networks dealing with phosphorus recovery and recycling, identify further research and demonstration needs to support development of the circular economy for nutrients, discuss implementation, identify obstacles and opportunities for moving from research to market rollout and societal uptake, including adapting to different local contexts.
