New EU-funded project aimed at mineral nutrient recovery is underway

We are pleased to announce the signing of the RUSTICA project where through a transdisciplinary multi-actor approach, we aim to validate, demonstrate and integrate six technological options for mineral nutrient recovery from fruit and vegetable waste streams in multi-valorisation configurations across 4 regions in the European Union.

The project will be validated in the context of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), through a close cooperation with The Alliance Bioversity-CIAT in Colombia. Besides technical development, the project will aim to co-develop practical circular bio-based business models for the valorisation of vegetable and fruit waste streams via biofertilizer production.

The participants that are involved in this project include University of Leuven, Organic Waste Systems NV, Chambre Régionale d’Agricultures des Pays de la Loire, BioSabor, S.A.T., Consiglio per la Ricerca in Agricoltura e l’Analisi dell’Economia Agraria, Fundacion para las Tecnologias Auxiliares de la Agricultura, Avecom NV, Entomo Consulting S.L., Particula Group d.o.o., Wiedemann GmbH, IDConsortium SL, Stichting CropEye, Eigen Vermogen van het Instituut voor Landbouw, Visserij en Voedingsonderzoek, The Netherland’s Organisation of Applied Scientific Research, Universiteit Gent, from across European Union, The Alliance Bioversity-CIAT, and The International Center for Tropical Agriculture of the CGIAR. The call ID is under CE-RUR-08 and proposal ID is SEP-210640749.
