EUSBSR Workshop on nutrient recycling
Invitation: EUSBSR Annual Forum Workshop
Unlocking the nutrient recycling potential in the Baltic Sea Region
Dear partners and friends,
Stepping into the autumn, we warmly invite you to join us at the online workshop on Unlocking the nutrient recycling potential in the Baltic Sea Region, which will be organized on 30 September 2020, 13.00–15.30 CET (14.00–16.30 EET) in the framework of the 11th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. The registration to it is now open!
This workshop will discuss the state-of-the-art in nutrient recycling within and across the two sectors: agriculture and municipal wastewater management.
The accumulation of nutrients in intensive livestock production areas and lack of sustainable solutions to recycle nutrients from wastewater are critical issues to solve in order to scale up circular economy, mitigate climate change and reduce eutrophication in inland and marine waters in the Baltic Sea Region. Sustainable use and better lifecycle management of plant nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus are important elements of the revised EUSBSR Action Plan and upcoming HELCOM Regional Nutrient Recycling Strategy to be adopted by the Baltic Sea coastal area countries in 2021.
Workshop participants will have the chance to discuss priority issues and recommendations outlined by the project platforms BSR WATER and SuMaNu as an input to the update of the post-2020 EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
The workshop includes in-depth group discussions focusing on the following topics:
- Group A: Boosting the market for recycled fertilizer products
- Group B: Cooperation towards sustainable phosphorus strategy in the BSR
- Group C: Reducing pollutants in sewage sludge and ensuring the safety of recovered nutrients
The workshop invites authorities, practitioners, researchers, innovators – everyone with an idea, challenge, responsibility or a question regarding nutrient recycling or products made with recycled nutrients and interest to develop and accelerate solutions on the international level.
