Background

The Organising Committee is proud to announce the 3rd edition of the ManuREsource conference.

As the establishment of a Circular Economy becomes more and more urgent, the central theme of the 3rd edition of ManuREsource is the transition in manure management. Manure management is moving rapidly away from a problem-solving situation towards an opportunities-driven approach. The possibilities to create value from manure are plenty, and can turn a manure surplus in one region into an opportunity in another region. Manure valorisation can therefore be a frontrunner of the circular economy. Besides, the core concept where the ManuREsource series is well known for, i.e., exchanging experiences and knowledge between European regions on effective policy measures dealing with manure surplus and innovations in manure treatment technologies, remains the same.

This year, ManuREsource will be organised in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) together with our local hosting partner, the Nutrient Platform (The Netherlands), as both The Netherlands and Flanders cope with a manure surplus.

After two successful editions, ManuREsource is becoming a well-established conference within the sector of manure management and valorization. For the third edition, we expect an even larger attendance of leading representatives of regulatory agencies, administrations, agricultural and environmental agencies, research institutes, technology supply industries, agro-industries and consultancy, as we will be able to profit from the additional experience and network of our local hosting partner NNP. Enjoy this great opportunity to get to know the players in the field of manure management and valorisation from all over the world!

Scope and conference themes

This conference will stimulate the exchange of experiencesbetween regions on the policy measures taken for coping with manure surpluses, both in terms of manure management in a broad sense, and more specifically in terms of manure treatment.

This conference also aims to give an overview of the current developments and innovations in manure treatment technologies and to explore various valorisation strategies for manure, like energy production and nutrient recovery.

This conference is organised by the Flemish Coordination Centre for Manure Processing, Ghent University, POM West Flanders and Inagro.

The conference will cover the following themes.
