Virtuous management of soil fertilisers
"Today, fertilisers, such as nitrogen and phosphorous, are made from non-renewable resources in mines and plants that transform the nitrogen in the atmosphere. We offer farmers recycled fertilisers produced by the circular economy.”
Laurent GaltierOrganic Activity Manager, Innovation, Marketing and Industrial Performance
Recovering the phosphorous in wastewater for use in agricultureOur Phosphogreen process recovers phosphorus from wastewater for use as a fertiliser. This is fundamental to preserve phosphate reserves, which are heading for exhaustion and constantly increasing in price. 20% of today's global demand for phosphorus could be fulfilled by recovering it from wastewater.
Developing enriched soil conditioners that meet farmers’ needsAs far as soil conditioners are concerned, returning organic matter to the soil is the best way of protecting soil quality in the long term, while reducing the use of chemical additives.
Our SUEZ Organique subsidiary has set up the TERRIAL joint venture with the Avril group to form a player in the forefront of the fertiliser and organic soil conditioner market in France.
This partnership is addressing a number of issues: how to better understand the needs of farmers and agricultural cooperatives, or how to develop the value of composts with a broader range of organic soil conditioners? It is essential to cooperate with the world of agriculture to improve soils with organic matter in the long term, while also tightening up the traceability of spreading operations.

"We are stepping up our work with farmers to offer input for their methanation plants and to find outlets for the recovery of their by-products, such as cereal residue, maize cane, etc. in our own methanation plants."
