Current Project Status: Active

Sectors in Project Scope: Agricultural Sector

Project Funding Sources: EU-funded

Project Keywords: Agriculture, Bio-based fertiliser (BBF), Comparative LCA

Short Description

Lex4Bio aims to optimise the use of bio-based fertilisers (BBF) from side-streams, ensuring their safety, building evidence-based trust in their usage and developing legislative framework for their use. A key result of Lex4Bio will be a universal, science-based toolkit for optimising the use of BBFs in agriculture and to assess their environmental impact in terms of non-renewable energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and LCA impact. 

The objective of one of the six work packages is to perform a comparative LCA of BBFs, mineral fertilisers and traditional methods of using agricultural residues. The LCA will be based on a jointly established convention aiming at making future LCAs of fertilising products comparable.

The Lex4Bio consortium is composed of 21 partners from 14 countries covering Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western parts of Europe. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
