RPE Project - Rise Phosphorus Efficiency

Work carried out with funding provided by the Veneto Region, POR FESR 2014-2020, Axis 1. Action 1.1.4. – Resolution no. 889 of 13 June 2017 – Invitation to tender to support projects performed by business combinations.

The heart of RPE is designing and making phosphate fertilisers, especially for organic agriculture, which are based on simple minerals which have not been chemically altered, and organic raw materials which are the waste products from other production chains.

The combination of phosphate rocks and food and animal residue, with specially selected and researched additives, will lead to an increase in the efficiency of the use of phosporous which, today, is universally considered to be very low, and that has required, in recent decades, an overdose, and hence a waste, of important resources to reach production objectives that the economics of the agricultural firm require.

The keyword, therefore, will be: increasing P-UE (Phosphorus Use Efficiency).
