About this Event

On 30th January 2020, Stockholm Environment Institute will host an event at Södra Teatern, Södermalm, on the circular management of nutrients in the Baltic Sea Region. A panel discussion will feature perspectives from stakeholders in the region.

This discussion will build upon the outcomes of the inquiry by the Swedish government into a possible ban of sewage sludge spreading on farmland and the introduction of a phosphorus recycling requirement.

The event will begin with a screening of “Sea of Opportunity”, an 18 minute film produced by BONUS RETURN highlighting solutions for recovering and reusing nutrients in Europe.

BONUS RETURN is a project exploring how ecotechnologies can turn nutrients and carbon from environmental problems into circular solutions in the Baltic Sea Region. This three-year project started in 2017 under the coordination of Stockholm Environment Institute, together with the following partners: Warsaw University of Life Sciences (WULS), Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), Uppsala University(UU), RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and University of Copenhagen (UCPH)​.

Through systematic research, testbeds in catchment areas, and engagement with many other Baltic Sea initiatives and stakeholders in the region, BONUS RETURN explores solutions towards reducing emissions by turning nutrients and carbon into profitable innovations in the Baltic Sea Region.
