Regional recycling of Phosphorus (RePhoR)

Germany will reduce its dependency on imports of phosphorus. Therefore the Federal Ministery for Education and Research (BMBF) will support projects for the recycling and reuse of phosphorus on a regional level. The goal is to recover phosphorus from waste water, sludge and reuse it in agriculture e.g. Funding is available only for collaborative projects between industry and universities/research centres.

Projects shall start with a concept phase of not more than 6 months. Deadline for proposals for the concept phase is 29th June, 2018. Project consortias with positive evaluated concepts will be invited to apply for funding for a second phase (implementation). This phase can take up to five years.
