The webinar (June 08, 2021) aimed to inform participants about the Nutriman project and at the same time to introduce the farmers' platform and present relevant examples of the products and technologies it contains. This was the perfect opportunity to explain to farmers and fertiliser specialists how to search and find the information that the Nutriman farmers' platform offers (e.g. the possibility to consult documents in the local language, the possibility to consult the EU regulation regarding fertilisers, how to stay informed about the project and how to participate by giving their opinion through the two questionnaires made available in the farmers' platform). Furthermore, different products and technologies were presented (such as bio-phosphate, compost, digestate and reductive thermochemical Phosphorus recovery...). At the same time, the current situation in Europe regarding the regulation of fertilisation and recycling was explained. The new European regulation 1009/2019, which will be applied from July 2022, was explained in detail. Finally, the problem of inappropriate waste management, which is becoming more and more frequent, was also explained. The uncontrolled decomposition of waste from agriculture and the agro-food industry (PRS) generates significant amounts of pollutants, including hazardous compounds and substances.
The presented Ps &T were:
ID 192: High nutrient dense Bio-Phosphate products recovered from food grade animal bone grist with over 30% P2O5 content by “3R Zero emission pyrolysis process”.
ID 210: Compost from green waste and digested mixed-waste by “ACEA Pinerolese” process.
ID 1664: Compost as soil improver from green waste by tunnel composting.
ID 264: Liquid and solid (dried) fraction digestate from manure and energy maize by “Agrogas” process.
ID 267: Pelletized digestate from mixture of pig manure, poultry manure and straw by “MIX-FERTILIZER” process.
ID 1665: Pellet organic fertilizer based on plant biomass digestate.
ID 193: 3R Recycle-Reuse-Reduce zero emission pyrolysis technology for phosphorus recovery from food grade animal bone grist for production of Bio-Phosphate products.
