2nd law workshop RePhoR

2nd law workshop of the BMBF funding measure RePhoR successfully took place

On Thursday, April 7, 2022, the second law workshop in the framework of the BMBF funding measure RePhoR took place. The four-hour event was open to the public and attracted great interest from external parties. A total of 87 people attended, representing each collaborative and sub-project of RePhoR, the steering committee, and external participants. The workshop was divided into three presentations and three discussion rounds each and created a basis for an informative exchange between participants and presenters through the speakers. Thematically, the law workshop dealt with the legal basis for the use and processing of sewage sludge for the production of fertilizers, as well as the terminology and classifications of waste and (by-)products. For this purpose, the Fertilizer Ordinance, the Waste Law and the Water Law were addressed and examined in more detail on the German as well as on the EU level. Mr. Hans-Walter Schneichel, Mr. Ludwig Hermann and Mr. Stefan Kopp-Assenmacher, who were able to provide theoretical as well as practical assistance due to their many years of experience, helped with the understanding. Furthermore, the project coordinator Hanna Evers of the collaborative project AMPHORE presented the legal issues that arose in the course of the project and which are still open, thus driving an exchange between the projects to identify common problems.

The workshop was organized and conducted by the networking project TransPhoR through FiW e. V. at RWTH Aachen University. The presentation slides of the speakers are available under the following link:
