Are you interested in:

  • Phosphorus recovery?
  • Improving water quality?
  • Recycled products as fertiliser?

This event, part of the European Union Phos4You research project, seeks to engage with stakeholders at an early stage to inform and direct the work of the Scottish research team so they can address concerns and capitalise on opportunities.

Phosphorus (P) is a nutrient, used primarily in rural areas as fertilizer or feed additive, then transferred within food to urban areas, and lost to the environment via sewage and waste. The EU has acknowledged this by adding phosphate rock to its list of critical raw materials in 2014. Phos4You aims to boost the use of secondary phosphorus by increasing recovery potential from waste water.

Attendance is free but places are limited and registration is necessary.
