Producing advanced bio-based fertilizers from fisheries wastes - SEA2LAND


The aim of SEA2LAND is to valorize waste/residues from fishereis and aquaculture as fertilisers and soil improvers.

This is a European project with partners from Malta and other Meditranean countries in the south to Norway in the north as well as in Chile in South America. A large number of products will be developed and tested across Europe. The goal is to develop products ready for market.

In Norway we will focus on fish sludge from aquaculture.

But how fast do these products degrade in Nordic soils and waste streams?
