New project: Circular Agronomics
This month of September we’ve started a new project under the H2020 Research and Innovation Programme called ‘Circular Agronomics’ (Grant Agreement No 773649).
Circular Agronomics (CA) addresses the challenge of sustainable circular management of Carbon (C), Nitrogen (N) and Phosphorus (P) by analysing flows, stocks and emissions from different European agricultural, livestock and food processing practices. The proposed solutions to close C, N, and P cycles constitute a further step towards making the European agri-food system an integral part of a Circular Economy by increasing resource efficiency, reuse and recovery, while simultaneously addressing associated environmental challenges such as greenhouse gas (GHG) and ammonia/nitrate emissions, as well as eutrophication of water bodies. This aim will be achieved by means of a multi-actor and transdisciplinary approach from different countries, agro-industrial and societal sectors which perfectly represent the most important stakeholder scenarios in terms of nutrient surpluses and losses, as well as livestock density in Europe.
