• EU Fertiliser Regulation recast: taking recovered nutrient products into account in the EU Fertiliser Regulatin revision. The EU published the full regulation proposal text (17-03-2016) and ESPP made a summary in SCOPE Newsletter 120. ESPP has provided the following input to the European Commission:
  • Information note on regulatory status of recovered struvite (REACH, Fertiliser Regulation, End-of-Waste) and see SCOPE Newsletter n° 124

  • Organic Farming Regulation: proposed validation of recycled P products (struvite, calcined phosphates) - see ESPP eNews n° 4

  • REACH (EU chemicals regulation):
  • Best available techniques (BAT) BREFs (Industrial Emissions Directive):
    • BAT for waste incineration – objective: take into account the recovery of phosphorus from ashes, including inciting separative incineration of high-P streams to generate ash with P-recovery potential (mono-incineration of sewage sludge, not mixing with industrial sludge or municipal solid wastes)
    • BAT for intensive pig & poultry production – see SCOPE Newsletter n° 116, see also ESPP letter to EID Forum 30/9/2015

  • Best management practices (BEMPs): EMAS (EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme Regulation) “agriculture” – see SCOPE Newsletter n° 116
