Recovering minerals

Cosun is taking part in a project under the BIOCAB umbrella known as BioNPK. Its aim is to develop smart techniques to recover nitrogen, phosphate, potassium and other minerals from residual flows and apply them in fertilisers and soil improvers for arable farmers. Cosun hopes its participation will help close the mineral cycle and reduce the use of artificial fertilisers. If and in so far as there is a national or regional surplus of minerals, they can be exported to regions with mineral deficits. For more information on recovering minerals, contact Johan.raap@cosun.com.


Cosun is also actively involved in the BioFib project to recover fibres from residual flows so that they can be used in a wide range of high value applications.
