The Fertiberia Chair of Agri-environmental Studies convenes its 15th Conference on decarbonisation strategies in the fertiliser sector

The Fertiberia Chair conference will analyse some of the ways to mitigate GHG emissions through the presentation of case studies

  • In line with the main conclusions of the COP28 on the need to rapidly and sustainably reduce GHG emissions to limit global warming to 1.5ºC, the European fertiliser industry committed to reduce its GHG emissions by 70% by 2040.
  • The event will be opened by Ana Rodríguez, Director General of Agricultural Productions and Markets of the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food; José Manuel Palacios, Director of the Technical School of Agricultural, Food and Biosystems Engineering (ETSIAAB) of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, and Javier Goñi, CEO of Fertiberia Group.

Madrid, 27/02/2024 – Under the title “Fertiliser Sector: Decarbonisation Strategies”, the Fertiberia Chair of Agri-environmental Studies will hold its 15th Conference on 21 March, which will address some of the ways to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the fertiliser sector.

The conference aims to analyse, in the field of fertilisers, some actions to rapidly and sustainably reduce gas emissions into the atmosphere and limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C, both objectives ratified at the 2023 UN Climate Summit, UN (COP28).

At the recent COP 28, targets were endorsed to reduce global GHG emissions by 43% by 2030, and 60% by 2035, relative to 2019 levels, reaching net zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2050. In line with this, the European fertiliser industry has committed to take actions that mitigate emissions by 70% by 2040 compared to 2020, and to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

These practices will be analysed during the Fertiberia Chair of Agri-environmental Studies conference, through specific case studies. Among others, the project for the production of green hydrogen and ammonia for the production of low-carbon fertilisers, led by Fertiberia, or the pioneering NSAFE technology developed by the company, the first bio-inhibitor that reduces nitrogen losses, protecting soil biodiversity, stand out.

Speakers at the conference will include Javier Goñi del Cacho, CEO of Fertiberia Group; José Ramón Conde, professor in the Department of Agricultural Production at the ETSIAAB; Christian Cerezo, Agro Lead SWE at PEPSICO, Belén Lostao, member of the Corporate Sustainability Department at ACCIONA and Javier González, Director of Agronomic Innovation at Fertiberia Group.
