ManuResource 2021

ManuREsource is an international conference stimulating the exchange of experiences between regions on the policy measures taken for coping with manure surpluses, both in terms of manure management in a broad sense, and more specifically in terms of manure treatment.


Although the COVID-19 pandemic had an enormous impact on our social and economic lives during the past year, the ManuREsource Organizing committee (VCM, UGent, Inagro en NCM) is convinced that there is light at the end of the tunnel!

They are preparing everything to organise a safe fifth edition of ManuREsource with all the well-known aspects of the previous successful editions of this international conference for scientists, policy makers, consultants, farmers and professionals on the theme of manure management.

If everything is going according to plan, ManuREsource 2021 will be organized on 24 and 25 November in ‘s Hertogenbosch (NL) at the Agri&Food Plaza, headquarters of ZLTO, the Southern Dutch farmers organisation, and HAS University of applied sciences.

On Friday 26 November 2021 a facultative field trip with exclusive site visits to local manure processing installations will be organised. In September 2021, local and international measures will be checked to decide if ManuREsource 2021 can be organised and what are the preconditions.

Registrations will open in September, but participants are already welcome to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations by September 1, 2021 for evaluation by the International Scientific Committee.

You can submit an abstract on one (or more) of the following topics:

  • Topic 1: fertilising with manure, digestate and derived products
  • Topic 2: product innovations and new markets for manure & digestate
  • Topic 3: process innovations in manure & digestate treatment
