The European Commission annually hosts the EU Green Week, a week long forum for policymakers, prominent environmentalists, and stakeholders from around Europe and beyond to discuss European environmental policy. The motto of the #EUGreenWeek of 2022 had been “EU Green Deal – Make It Real”.
Veltha orginised two #EUGreenWeek partner events int total. The events fell within our series “LOOPS” in which we give rise to a thought-provoking discussion with H2020 project coordinators to shed light on the cutting-edge innovation produced at the research level. We talked with four different projects and discussed vastly different topics.
On Friday, the 3rd of June, we held our second LOOPS #EUGreenWeek episode. In which discussed together with Bioschamp and SUSFERT the importance of healthy soils and what the key elements of EU Soil Strategy are.
#EUGreenWeek Loops 2.0: DigiPrime and EFPF on digital technologies
#EUGreenWeek - Loops 2.0: a dialogue with BIOSCHAMP and SUSFERT
The EU-funded Bioschamp project will develop a peat-free casing soil to serve as a carrier for the selected microbiota that will act as crop biostimulants. Improving industrial profitability while reducing the agronomical need for pesticides by 90%.
SUSFERT will develop multifunctional fertilisers for phosphorus (P) and iron (Fe) supply, which will fit into existing production processes and common EU agricultural practice.
Combining bio-based and biodegradable coatings, probiotics, and the renewable P-source struvite in at least four novel sustainable P and Fe fertiliser products, which may partly or fully replace unsustainable and resource-intense conventional ones.
Together with the representatives of those two projects, we discussed the EU Soil Strategy and the importance of healthy soil.
