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!

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
