This conference is organized by the Flemish Coordination Centre for Manure Processing, Ghent University, Inagro, POM West-Flanders and the Dutch Centre of Expertise for Manure Valorization.

A panel debate will be organized focusing on manure as a sustainable resource and as a key towards a sustainable food production. Confirmed panel members represent research (WUR), policy (Lombardia region, Italy), mineral fertilizer industry (YARA) and the biomethanisation sector (FEBA). During the two days conference, also the BAT study currently being executed in Flanders on manure processing and nutrient recycling techniques will be presented by VITO, testimonials from installations/projects working towards a circular economy will be given and round table discussions on the central topic on nutrient recycling from manure will take place.
