On the project

There are several technologies for P recovery from waste and production of fertilizers, however, they are not implemented in V4. One of the reason is lack of clear information on P secondary resources and its recovery potential. Therefore, project aims to fill this gap. It includes detailed inventory of P-rich waste in V4, incl. estimation of P recovery potential. Mapping service showing the possible places of P recovery and P-rich waste will be also developed. These activities have not been done for V4 yet.
