Strong ReUseWaste turnout at RAMIRAN 2015

The 16th RAMIRAN conference, recently held in Hamburg, provided an excellent showcase for ReUseWaste research. Thematic topics covered in the conference were A) Quality Fertilizers from Residues, B) Sustainable Soils, C) Advances in Emission Prevention, D) The Bioresource Challenge and E) Sustainable Regions. The conference had 230 participants, representing 35 countries, with more than 10% coming from outside Europe and was therefore a great opportunity for ReUseWaste fellows and their supervisors to network with related researchers around Europe and the rest of the world.

In all, there were nine ReUseWaste presentations, seven oral and two posters, covering a range of topics related to organic residues and their application in agriculture. Below you can find a list of the interesting ReUseWaste papers given at RAMIRAN, please contact the first authors if you want a copy of their paper.

ReUseWaste fellow George Bekiaris from Univ. of Copenhagen claimed second prize in the poster competition for his poster on fast  estimation  of  the  labile carbon  fraction  of organic waste products by FTIR  photoacoustic spectroscopy – congratulations George! In the final session of the conference, ReUseWaste coordinator, Professor Lars Stoumann Jensen, presented his visions for how to deal with future European manure management challenges.
