REFERTIL project

REFERTIL project

Reducing mineral fertilisers and chemicals use in agriculture by recycling treated organic waste as compost and bio-char products

Improvement of comprehensive bio-waste transformation and nutrient recovery treatment processes for production of combined natural products

Purpose of the project

REFERTIL has the mission to contribute to the transformation of urban organic waste, food industrial by-products and farm organic residues from a costly disposal process into an income generating activity.
            This includes an EU-27 standardized, advanced, and comprehensive bio-waste treatment and nutrient recovery process towards zero emission performance. The improved output products will be safe, economical and standardized compost and biochar products containing phosphorous and nitrogen that can be economically and beneficially used by farmers.

           As a result, both food and environmental safety is improved, while a new economy is generated.
