Dedicated to the control, the characterization and the potential for modification of the quality, the intrinsic characteristics and the effects of both primary raw materials and organic by-products that offer potential to be used as secondary raw materials.
The ‘Soil Quality and Nutrient Management’ research program is mainly dedicated to the characterization and control of the intrinsic properties of both primary raw materials and organic by-products that offer potential to be used as secondary raw materials in the fertilizer industry. The ultimate goal of a thorough characterization or modification of these materials is to enhance their functionality and to enlarge their valorisation potential. More specifically, this research focuses on organic products, in both raw and finished forms, that are being used by or produced in the primary sector (i.e. agriculture and horticulture). Examples include fertilizers, soil amendments, potting media and other substrates.
Research conducted in this program integrates the expertise of other scientists within Scientia Terrae and periodically involves collaborators of university, government, and private research groups.
