Within the Netherlands there is a strong emphasis on the realization of concrete business cases, projects and cooperation’s between partners throughout the value chain. Creating a sustainable market within two years, where as many reusable phosphate streams as possible will be returned to the cycle in an environment-friendly way and where the secondary (recycled) phosphate – as long as surplus exists on the Dutch market – will be exported to the fullest extent possible. This, in order to contribute elsewhere to soil improvement and food production. This approach will give substance to the creation of a raw materials roundabout.
On a national level progress is being made on: Creating more insight in phosphate flows, routes and markets;
Redesigning the legislative framework and support the development of several concrete regional business cases.
