B-Ferst Project

State:

in progress

This project seeks to improve the management and recovery of waste by utilising the nutrients it contains, improve the sustainability of agriculture and the competitiveness of farmers, reduce dependence on external sources, and increase the resilience of the European fertiliser industry.

Bio-based fertilisers as best practice for agricultural sustainability

The European Union has the most efficient agriculture in the world and the most advanced fertiliser manufacturing industry; in particular, in terms of emissions, it has the lowest carbon footprint.

However, it is heavily dependent on foreign raw materials for the production of mineral fertilisers (natural gas, phosphate rock, etc.).

Moreover, these nutrients that we have been bringing into Europe for years, and which are necessary to maintain agricultural activity and to be able to supply the population with the food and agricultural goods it needs, largely accumulate after use in waste (sludge, sewage, manure, etc.).

  • Our commitment to the sustainability of agriculture, resource efficiency and the environment makes this a priority issue for the company.

Objective

This project seeks to improve the management and recovery of waste by utilising the nutrients it contains, improve the sustainability of agriculture and the competitiveness of farmers, reduce dependence on external sources, and increase the resilience of the European fertiliser industry.

  • B-Ferst's main aim is to create new value chains incorporating the recovery of bio-waste into agricultural management plans, transforming municipal or agri-food waste into fertilisers, and contributing to the circular economy. B-FERST represents a model shift from the traditional production-profit approach based on the use of non-renewable resources (commodities), to a sustainable production model focused on tailor-made specialised products: a new generation of sustainable fertilisers, framed within the concepts of circular economy and green chemistry.
