Ragn-Sells innovation company EasyMining has developed solutions for detoxifying and recirculating both phosphorus and nitrogen with a low carbon footprint. The challenge is that these recycled products cannot be used with current EU-legislation. On that topic, Pär Larshans, Ragn-Sells, and Anna Lundbom, EasyMining, will on December 17 participate in EAT’s digital event EAT@Home.
- EasyMinings’ solutions detoxify and recirculate both phosphorus and nitrogen with really low carbon footprints. One of our biggest challenges is that legislation at the EU level prevents the use of recovered nutrients from waste. Quality must come before origin - that will be our message to the members of the European Parliament during our side session, says Anna Lundbom, head of Marketing at EasyMining.
The importance of enabling the use of circular and detoxified nutrients
On December 17, Pär Larshans, Sustainability Director at Ragn-Sells, together with Anna Lundbom, head of Marketing at EasyMining, will participate in EAT’s digital event, EAT@Home. The side session “A circular economy will help the planet heal” will include members of the European Parliament, scientists, retailers and the solution providers doing a deep dive into the problem. But more important – discussing how a way forward is possible by changing the legislation from today’s linear fossil dependent world into tomorrow’s circular and low carbon future.
- When it comes to our planetary boundaries’ science is clear, we are soon about to pass a threshold when it is impossible to reverse some of the planetary processes. Innovation in combination with new policies in place will be able to reduce some of the burdens, says Pär Larshans.
The side session will be open for anyone and broadcasted via Zoom. Register today - the event is free.
Date: 17th December
Time: 14:30 – 16:00 CET

When EasyMining's Ash2Phos process was invented, it was a completely new way to produce a clean, recycled phosphorus fertilizer from sewage sludge. The innovation company has subsequently continued to invent new technologies where intelligent, chemical solutions are used to recover important materials from waste. The detoxified recycled materials can then be reintroduced into the loop.
Technologies which supports the planetary challenges
EasyMining has applied the work of producing new innovations to different materials and has several other patents besides Ash2Phos. CleanMAP is a technology that makes the production of the commercial fertilizer MAP (monoammonium phosphate) more efficient. In the Ash2Salt process, the fly ash is washed, and three commercial salts are extracted from the wash liquid. In Project N, nitrogen is extracted from ammonium rich water through a circular chemical method recovering the nutrient for use as an agricultural fertilizer component.
What is EAT@Home?
EAT@Home is EAT’s transition from traditional Food Forums to a virtual convening on the journey towards the UN Food Systems Summit in fall 2021. The digital gathering has been launched in November 2020 and bring together some of the leading thinkers, leaders, decision-makers, and practitioners from around the world to have conversations on how we can fix the global food system. The convening will consist of two main elements: live broadcasts and side sessions, facilitated with partners. EAT@Home is designed to align with and contribute to the UN Summit, in which EAT executive chair Gunhild Stordalen has been tasked with leading the action track dedicated to Shifting to Sustainable Consumption Patterns.
