ReNu2Cycle: REcycling of NUtrients to close the fertiliser CYCLE

In North-West Europe, essential plant nutrients like nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) are lost in form of non-recycled organic resources from waste sector and nutrient surplus regions due to a predominating linear economic model.

ReNu2Cycle promotes the circular economy by a transregional valorisation of recycled NPK from municipal, industrial waste and agricultural sector in Flanders, The Netherlands, Ireland, Saarland, Lower Saxony and Luxembourg.
