NUTRI2CYCLE

Approach to the current gaps in the N, P and C cycles of the different European agricultural systems

Description

NUTRI2CYCLE addresses the current gaps in the N, P and C cycles of different European agricultural systems and the related environmental problems by implementing optimized management systems whilst having a positive trade–off with productivity, quality and environmental impact. 

 

 

Objectives

  • Map the current flows and gaps in C, N and P cycles.
  • Implement a toolbox with comprehensible indicators to measure sustainability.
  • Assessment of 60 proposed optimized farming systems and prioritize 12-16 for further full-scale demonstration.
  • Further development and testing of minimal 1-2 prototype per farm typology.
  • Impact calculation at regional & EU level.
  • Evaluation on how agro-products obtained could affect consumer behavior.

Actions

  • Identifying innovative solutions.
  • Evaluate and prioritize the proposed solutions, taking into account their capacity and potential to close the N, P and C loops and their technological, environmental and economic validity.
  • Light-house demo’s: advancing the TRL level by leading examples.
  • Advancing loop closure throughout Europe: outreach by mirroring.

Expected results

  • Effective solutions for C-, N- and P-efficient agro ecosystems.
  • Improved overall sustainability and innovation capacity of the farming systems.
  • Reduction of environmental impact.
  • Integrated scientific support for relevant EU policies (Common Agricultural Policy, Water Framework Directive, sustainable use of pesticides, etc).
  • Strengthened transdisciplinary research for long-lasting implementation of results.

LIFE VALPORC

LIFE VALPORC

The goal of the LIFE + VALPORC is to demonstrate a sustainable alternative to the management of pig carcasses and manure, focusing on the environmental problems derived from its current management and valorizing these wastes by transforming them into biofuels (biogas and biodiesel) and organic fertilizers,

RECALZA

RECALZA

RECALZA proposes to develop a chemical recycling process of the generated polyurethane foam residues, to obtain the polyol again and re-manufacture new products (recycled soles) that meet the requirements for the footwear sector.
