Event review: Circular Fertilisers for healthy soils: drivers and challenges

Back in March 2020, the European Commission announced its intention to develop an integrated nutrient management strategy in the Circular Economy Action Plan, “with a view to ensuring more sustainable application of nutrients and stimulating the markets for recovered nutrients”. Later in 2021, the Communication on Sustainable Carbon Cycles was adopted, promoting green business models which take up sustainable practices, including the recycling of carbon from waste streams. 

Against this background, Consorzio Italiano Compostatori organised in Brussels in collaboration with the support of the European Compost Network a seminar to discuss with fertiliser producers the drivers and barriers (from the technical, economic, social, legislative and environmental point of view) for the uptake of circular fertilisers in the market. 

The event took place on the 18 April and engaged 34 participants into a fruitful discussion.
