Our partners Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ) and Università degli Studi di Torino (UNITO), Department of Agricultural, Forest, and Food Sciences, wrapped up an engaging ‘In Situ’ Innovation Assessment of ‘Nutrient recovery from liquid waste materials through microbial immobilization in compost.’

During the meeting, we had the privilege to tour the state-of-the-art UNITO laboratories and discussed the groundwork for organizing a visit to the renowned pilot plant biwi – Biogas Wipptal in September.

The exchange of ideas and expertise during the meeting was immensely valuable in setting the stage for future work. UNITO shared an update on the progress of WP2, focusing on innovative technologies that can effectively reduce nutrient pollution from manure and other organic matrices.

Meanwhile, IGZ will be actively involved in developing a model for WP5, which deals with the crucial aspects of environmental impacts, life cycle analysis, and socioeconomic considerations.
