BMBF-funded measure RePhoR successfully draws up mid-term balance at status seminar in Frankfurt a. M.
On May 3 and 4, 2023, the seven BMBF-funded collaborative projects as well as the cross-cutting topics presented their respective status of work and interim results. The status seminar was organized and hosted by the scientific accompanying and transfer project TransPhoR. It marked the mid-term of the funding period and welcomed around 140 participants to the DECHEMA building in Frankfurt am Main.
The conference was opened by Dr.-Ing. Luis Tercero Espinoza, who introduced the criticality of phosphorus with a keynote speech on current developments in the raw materials market. In presentations by the project coordinators and those responsible for the overarching cross-cutting issues, as well as in the form of a poster exhibition, it was possible to present and discuss the work carried out to date by the funding measure. In a panel discussion, the question of the status and developments of phosphorus recycling in view of the legal requirements until 2029 was discussed. The first day was open to the professional public and offered not only funding recipients but also operators and participants from business, politics, administration and other interested parties the opportunity to learn more about the current state of phosphorus recycling.
On the second day, an internal RePhoR workshop took place in the form of a World Café, in which questions concerning products & markets, legal aspects, risk management and sustainability analysis were discussed in several rounds on a total of four topic tables. All presentations as well as the conference proceedings will be made available on the event page soon. We would like to thank all speakers, exhibitors and participants for the insights into their work and the constructive exchange.
