Fifth edition of ManuREsource!

The ManuREsource Organizing committee and NCM (Dutch Center of Expertise for valorization of manure), are pleased to announce the fifth ManuREsource edition, which will be organized in The Netherlands.

ManuREsource is an international triple-helix conference for scientists, policy makers, consultants, farmers and professionals on the theme of manure management. In November 2021, the conference will host participants from around 20 countries. We hope to meet you all on 24 and 25 November in ‘s Hertogenbosch (NL) at the Agri&Food Plaza, headquarters of ZLTO, the Southern Dutch farmers organisation, and HAS University of applied sciences. On Friday 26 November 2021 a facultative field trip with exclusive site visits to local manure processing installations will be organised.

Circular agriculture with low emissions and nutrient recovery from manure is high on the European Union agenda. The European Green Deal provides an action plan to boost an efficient use of resources by moving to a clean, circular economy. Several member states have already highlighted the importance of technological research, development and upscaling of the best available technologies for nutrient recovery from manure and the adaption of relevant European legislation.

Collaboration with like-minded member states is of uttermost importance to move to a circular, sustainable manure processing within realistic economic, ecological and social boundaries. Therefore, ManuREsource 2021 aims to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy by exchanging experiences and knowledge with concerned international stakeholders and policy makers from all these regions.

More detailed information will be communicated soon and can be accessed on the conference website.
