Funding success for multidisiplinary environmental research

A Life Sciences - Engineering team from Wesic in collaboration with the University of Limerick and the Technical University of Munich has been awarded an £820 K research grant from the Green ERA Hub. The 3 year project will investigate approaches to manage soil nutrient status of agricultural soils using organic waste materials. In particular the strategies will be used to close nutrient cycles and reduce the need for application of environmentally damaging fertilisers to agricultural soils, while increasing soil carbon stocks and improving soil resilience. These practices will contribute to net zero particularly by reducing emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide from agricuture.
