REFERTIL project

Purpose of the project:
REFERTIL provides EU-28 standardized, advanced, and comprehensive bio-waste treatment and nutrient recovery process improvements towards zero emission performance with eco-safe output compost and biochar products. The REFERTIL development works cover fields from applied science to economical industrial scale ups, including industrial technology engineering for the benefits and interest of the SME farmers. The improved output products will be safe, economical and standardized compost and biochar products containing phosphorous and nitrogen that can be economically and beneficially used by SME farmers. As a result, both food and environmental safety is improved, while a new bio-economy is generated.
Thank you for participating in this questionnaire about Biochar and Compost. The purpose is to determine the possible market for Biochar and improved Compost products in relation to the EU FERTRILIZER REGULATION revision.
The questionnaire should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Responses to the survey are anonymous and all completed survey material is strictly confidential.
The questionnaire are divided into three sections; a general section about the respondent, a Biochar section and a Compost section.
The results from this study will be used to examine the following:
Consumer acceptance evaluation of Biochar and Compost.
Socio-economic analysis and feasibility of REFERTIL Biochar and Compost technologies.
Evaluation of the awareness of the Biochar and Compost materials.
Evaluation of the market response to REFERTIL Biochar and Compost products.
Evaluation of the potential barriers of the Biochar and Compost technologies.
