ACI’s European Mineral Fertilizer Summit takes place on December 6 & 7 in Amsterdam. The two day event will provide an exclusive platform for collaboration and discussion between a variety of industry perspectives including manufacturers, suppliers, distribution/logistics, academia but some other involved areas as policymakers, NGO’s, nutrition and environment preservers.

Tackling the latest opportunities arising from society concerns, the objective of this conference is to emphasize and implement the latest plant technology and best practices within operational production. The main aim is to identify potential solutions, future work programmes and productive partnerships that overcome the key regulatory challenges. Focus on minimizing risk within the supply chain, promoting access to secure food supply and environmental preservation.

Key topics include:

  • Current updates in the EU Policy & Regulation: Brexit and latest consultations
  • Expanding the fertilizer market & new opportunities for grow
  • Agrochemical formulation, applications & production optimization
  • Opportunities and barriers in micro-nutrients portfolio development
  • The latest nanotechnology applications & research initiatives
  • Up-To-Date trading & pricing overview

IFDC and Syngenta

Senior representatives from IFDC and Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture will specifically speak on “Unlocking the multiple public good services from balanced fertilizers”:

  • Fertilizer have boosted crop yields but come with environmental impact beyond planetary boundaries.
  • Yet, fertilizer can serve many more societal goals than food production alone which can stimulate urgently needed public and private investment in R&D for innovation.
  • Increased awareness among NGO’s, policy makers, private sector and research institutions is needed to push for transformation of the fertilizer sector.

IFDC would particularly welcome farmers practicing innovative (= more than just the standard) fertilizer operations; and development NGOs who would like to enter into the conversation with fertilizer companies.
