PhosFarm

Process for sustainable phosphorus recovery from agricultural residues by enzymatic process to enable a service business for the benefit of European farm community

In the PhosFarm project, the Fraunhofer IGB is involved in developing an enzymatic process for the sustainable recovery of phosphorus from agricultural residues. Phosphorus will be recovered as a valuable fertilizer, so that the process will provide an additional source of revenue for European farmers in the future.
