How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Currently my research focuses on modelling the effects of bio-based fertilizers use on surface water pollution at catchment and European scales using two models: MITERRA-Europe and MARINA to estimate the nutrient emissions caused by biofertilizer use in Europe.

BACKGROUND This study involved model evaluation of the acute impact of sulfamethoxazole on utilization of peptone mixture and acetate by fast growing microbial cultures under aerobic conditions. These substrates were selected to represent complex and readily biodegradable organic carbon sources, respectively. Acclimated biomass was obtained from tw...

In fast growing world, the food supply is expected to increase by 70% to feed world population in 2050. As the European Union (EU) strongly depends on non-renewable P and synthetic N fertilizers (> 90%), the EU Action Plan on circular economy aims to reduce non-renewable fertilizer production by 30% and minimize economic loss by gaining nutrients from wastes. In this context, upcycling organic wastes to produce new bio-based fertilizers is one of the best options to reduce the waste production and contribute to circular economy by sustainable agriculture. Therefore, we need to formulate state-of-art high-nutrient content bio-based fertilizers from production to their implementation to meet both the farmers and fertilizer industries' needs as well as to fulfil the EU Action Plan requirements.
