ReUseWaste in brief
Project title: ReUseWaste - Recovery and Use of Nutrients, Energy and Organic Matter from Animal Waste
Funding: € 3.24 million over the period 2012-2015
Source: EU FP7 Marie Curie Action programme, under the Initial Training Network call.
Training: 13 young researchers (PhD students and post-docs) will be trained in the project.

ReUseWaste objectives
ReUseWaste is a multi-site and multidisciplinary training network, bringing
together major EU research groups from leading universities and research institutes,
key agri-environmental technology companies and public authorities, from the
countries and regions of most intensive livestock production in Europe
The ReUseWaste network will:
• provide new ideas, methods and principles that lead to a major rethink in the current,
established animal waste management systems
• train a group of young researchers in developing new technologies for improved and
sustainable utilisation of valuable organic matter and plant nutrient resources in
animal waste
• provide companies with improved and new technologies to produce both bioenergy
and ”green” bio-fertilisers, leading to improved soil, water and air quality
