Climate change and anthropic factors are risk factors that are increasingly affecting soil health and fertility. Fertilizers produced from sewage sludge are a significant source of organic carbon and nutrients for soil and crops. The conference aims to provide an update on the production and applications of sludge based fertilizers, on their characteristics and agronomic properties, as well as highlight the quality requirements necessary to guarantee their safe and environmentally friendly use.
