AgFutura Technology is part of Horizon 2020 project called Bio-Based FERtilising products as the best practice for agricultural management SusTainability – B-FERTS. This project started on 01.05.2019 and it will last for 5 years with main topic to Produce biopesticides or bio-based fertilizers as components of sustainable agricultural management plans.
Projects main objective is to integrate the valorisation of bio-waste in agriculture management plans, thus creating anew circular and bio-based value chains considering a bilateral interaction between farming and fertilizer sectors focused on a paradigm shift in the fertilizer value chain with 8 specialized fertilizers. The sustainability of B-FERTS is based on the reuse of bio-waste to replace non-renewable, non-domestic and energy intensive raw materials:
- Bio-based solid fertilizers including renewable sources of macronutrients (N,P,K);
- Biostimulants for soil nutrient improvement.
The viability of the project is based on previous R&D from other RIA projects. The manufacturing process will be demonstrated at a demonstrative industrial scale.
