Renu2Farm keeps on running - Approval for ReNu2Farm’s Capitalisation Initiative

The ReNu2Farm project has been successfully approved at Interreg North-West Europe Programme’s call for capitalisation initiatives (CAP) in March 2021 and runs from April 2021 until March 2023. 

The project will stimulate new markets for increased RDF (recycling-derived fertilizer) use and decrease mineral fertiliser usage in North-West Europe. New target groups will be the horticulture and the private/recreational sectors, whereas the horticulture sector represents the largest RDF sales market after agriculture. Private households with stakeholders from leisure activities and the recreational sector will be addressed to increase public acceptance of RDFs. 

Most promising RDF products from the ReNu2Farm field & pot trials will be used in comprehensive greenhouse trials to adapt & proof RDF application/efficiency for horticulture use. In order to overcome main threats for RDF market entry, Renu2Farm CAP follows up elaborating recommendations for EU policies, reduce knowledge gaps and boost awareness raising for RDF uptake.
