German Phosphorus PlatformDPP Logo RGB 300dpi

The Deutsche Phosphor Plattform (DPP) is a network of stakeholders from science, industry and public bodies to establish sustainable phosphorus management in Germany through a more efficient use of phosphorus as well as effective recycling and reprocessing.

Core to the approach of DPP is dentifying and implementing innovative technologies that allow economically feasible recycling of phosphorus on a broad scale but also through improved use of phosphorus in already existing manufacturing processes. This includes increases in production efficiency as well as re-using production waste as input material were possible.

Germany is leading in environmental engineering solutions and has identified several ways to recover phosphorus from different waste streams. Commercial use of these technologies however is not state of the art and still leaves room for improvement.

The DPP network is developing multiple strategies that each focus on optimising phosphorus use efficiency, recycling rates and substitution potential to work towards the combined goal of sustainable phosphorus use throughout Germany.

DPPs main activities are therefore:

  • networking for representatives from industry, agriculture and science as well as policy makers and local authorities interested in sustainable phosphorus management
  • promotion of a interdisciplinary systems thinking approach, development of regulation proposals and recommendations for policy makers
  • organisation of events, seminars and workshops on phosphor-related topics
  • initiation and coordination of members’ projects
  • public dissemination activities and exchange of best practices in the area of sustainable phosphorus management
