Conference: Phosphorus a limited resource - Closing the Loop
A global plan for phosphorus recirculation is needed! This was one of the strong messages at the first Nordic Phosphorus Conference in Malmö on October 27-28. 2016.

Phosphorus is an irreplaceable nutrient that we can not live without. At the same time it is a scarce and non-renewable resource, which today we are wasting huge amounts of from fork to farm. But phosphorus can be recycled and reused, so a better utilization of phosphorus is a key point of the Circular Economy. We can, in the Nordic countries help put better phosphorus utilization in a circular perspective high on the international and European agenda.
At the Phosphorus conference we create a meeting place for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, best-practice and political attention locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Hear European Sustainable Phosphorus Platform (ESPP) and EU Commission give their views on what it takes to ensure phosphorus resources in the future as well as national authorities and companies from the Nordic countries that have technology and skills for improved phosphorus utilization.
The Phosphorus Conference is organized by Swedish Waste Management (Avfall Sverige), Norwegian Waste Management and Recycling Association (AVfall Norge) and Waste & Resource Network Denmark (DAKOFA) and is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
The Program Committee consists of representatives from academia, the Nordic countries’ water and waste water treatment organisations, industry and environmental authorities.
