Building on optimization around nutrients, we are now looking at how such organic waste recycling interfaces with energy production (biogas especially), animal welfare (e.g. mobile slaughterhouses), and aquatic biomass harvesting for eutrophication remediation in order for Sweden to meet multiple sustainable development goals at once.
PartnersThis work has important implications for policy decisions for food and agricultural severity and environmental sustainability, but also for company profitability.
We have thus partnered with stakeholders in Region Östergötland, along with other research teams at LiU, to coordinate and co-develop relevant questions, datasets, and outputs with the community.
