ManuREsource 2017: press invitation

On 27 and 28 November 2017, the third edition of the ManuREsource conference, an international conference on manure management and valorization, will take place in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. 

The central theme of ManuREsource 2017 is the transition of manure management towards a Circular Economy. Manure management is moving rapidly away from a problem-solving towards an opportunities-driven approach. The possibilities to create value from manure are plenty, and can turn a manure surplus in one region into an opportunity in another region. Manure valorisation can therefore be a frontrunner of the circular economy. The core concept of ManuREsource, i.e., exchanging experiences and knowledge between European regions on effective policy measures dealing with manure surplus and innovations in manure treatment technologies, remains the same.
