The European Commission has added phosphate rock to the list of 20 Critical Raw Materials, for which supply security is at risk and economic importance is high. Phosphate rock is identified as non-substitutable and of high economic importance.

    The eMarket platform enables match making between suppliers of recovered nutrients and potential end-users looking for secondary raw materials and products. The plattform is accessible through the ESPP website. The non-commercial plattform facilitates the market development for secondary nutrients. Interested companies, utilities, farmers and other nutrient suppliers or users are invited to register their offer or requirements online. Use and participation are free of charge with information/content given on voluntarily base. See how it works, and register as a user here. The eMarket has been developed within the P-REX project.
