EU's Call for Proposals: Bio-based fertilisers from animal manure

Projects shall demonstrate processes for recovery of mineral nutrients and production of novel fertilisers from animal manure.
Applications are closed

Projects shall demonstrate processes for recovery of mineral nutrients and production of novel fertilisers from animal manure. Proposals shall perform a thorough analysis of the state of the art, and demonstrate that the activities proposed go beyond past or ongoing research, without overlaps. Technologies that are currently under development shall be further improved, and possibly integrated, to produce high quality end-products[3].

Proposals shall address end-product marketability, safety, sustainability including emissions of greenhouse gasses and pollutants, and compliance with relevant EU regulations[4]. Their suitability and acceptability under the organic farming regulatory framework shall also be analysed. An integrated assessment of the business model (economic, agronomic, social and environmental) shall be performed.

The whole value chain shall be demonstrated to a near-commercial scale (TRL 6-7). Proposals shall fall under the concept of the 'multi-actor approach'[5] including relevant actors such as agro-food industries, technology providers, research centres, end-users (farmers and farmer associations), or public administration.

[3] These can be mineral-type (i.e. with low organic matter content), or advanced organic fertilisers (e.g. through improved composting processes).

[4] This includes notably regulations relative to fertilisers, animal by-products, or nitrates.

[5] See definition of the 'multi-actor approach' in the introduction to this Work Programme part.

Dateline for submission: 23 January 2019 17:00:00 Brussels time
