Circular Nutrients for a sustainable Baltic Sea Region

The project aims to encourage the creation and development of a circular economy for nutrients. The emphasis is on improving current infrastructures and technologies to maximize nutrient recovery from biomasses and resource streams coming from agriculture, municipalities and industry.

More efficient use of nutrients and recycled fertilizer products will pave the way for sustainable, climate-neutral food production, increased food and reduce eutrophication in the Baltic Sea.

CiNURGi supports many high level strategies

The main goal of CiNURGi is to support the implementation of the HELCOM Baltic Sea Regional Nutrient Strategy and the HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan. Other supported frameworks are the EU’s new Circular Economy Action Plan of the Green Deal and Integrated Nutrient Management Action Plan of the Farm to Fork Strategy. CiNURGi also contributes to EUSBSR PA Nutri and PA Bioeconomy.

Nutrient recycling will be studied from many angles including: 

  • develop and promote standards for safe and sustainable recycling of nutrients
  • develop strategies to implement nutrient recycling as a measure to improve national and regional nutrient balances
  • increase the acceptance and use of recycled nutrients
  • create business opportunities around nutrient recycling
  • improve policy coherence regarding nutrient recycling in the Baltic Sea Region.
Kick-off meeting, Nov 29 - Dec 01, Gothenburg, Sweden

The CiNURGi consortium includes 24 partners and 13 associated organisations from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden.
