Nutrients Recovery - eMarket platform launched!
European project P-REX and European Sustainable Phosphorus Platform launch eMarket platform to facilitate the recovery of nutrients.
The eMarket platform enables match making between suppliers of recovered nutrients (and potential end-users looking for secondary raw materials and products.
Suppliers of recovered nutrients include water utilities, manure processing plants, waste management companies. Potential users cover the agricultural supply chain from fertiliser manufacturing (use as a secondary raw material), through fertiliser blenders and distribution, to agricultural cooperatives and farmers, as well as other nutrient users such as nurseries, parks and gardens, forestry and land reclamation.
The eMarket platform is non-commercial and facilitates the market development for secondary nutrients. Interested companies, utilities, farmers and other nutrient suppliers or users are invited to register their offer or requirements online. Use and participation are free of charge with information/content given on voluntarily base.
With regards to long term sustainability beyond the duration of P-REX as a project, the eMarket has been directly incorporated into the website of the European Sustainable Phosphorus Platform (ESPP).
The eMarket-database will provide a wide range of information: type of product, nutrients content, quantities available, physical location of production, supply/transport logistics
The eMarket has been developed within the EU FP7 funded project P-REX (contract no. 308645; www.p-rex.eu) and was shaped by many stakeholders in and outside the project.
Let’s make nutrient recovery and recycling happen!

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.
Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...
On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
