Exploring the supply, demand and technical dynamics shaping the global phosphate industry
In light of the current pandemic, CRU Phosphates 2021 will take place as a virtual conference from 23-25 March 2021. The annual conference regularly attracts an audience of 400+ delegates from 40+ countries from across the global phosphates supply chain, and is a must-attend for both senior commercial and technical decision-makers to network with influential stakeholders, and for professional development.
- Identify regulatory obstacles to nutrient recycling/reuse from waste-derived algae / micro-algae, i.e. which either have had ‘waste’ status or which are grown using waste inputs
- Outline potential valorisation routes, current status of development and market potential, important risk questions (contaminants, safety)
- Propose possible approaches to address key regulatory questions identified.
Water treatment operations can set a prime example of circular economy in action, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 12 for responsible consumption and production. What has traditionally been considered as waste – sewage water and sludge – carry great potential for value capture for instance in terms of nutrients and energy. Join this webinar to hear some examples of how to enhance the circularity performance of your water treatment operations, backed by science.
We kindly invite you to participate in the second edition of the DWP KnowNow webinar series!
The upcoming webinar will highlight the results of the evaluation and the potential revision of the
EU Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive presented by EC representative Nele-Frederike Rosenstock
and the relevance of the ongoing process for the water sector in the Danube region.
