Sustainable Water treatment and Nutrient reuse options (SUWANU)

Start date: Jul 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

Agricultural practices put the biggest pressure on fresh water resources for irrigation (55% of the water use in Europe) and on fertilizer usage. The European farmers face serious problems such as freshwater scarcity and nutrient availability, extreme climate conditions and the growing demand of the increasing population. This results in rising prices for mineral fertilizers and food, risky measur ...
