Resilient Phosphorus Supply and Use

M Raddant October 18, 2023

As the high point of the first year of the phosphorus project we had our conference. Thanks to Gerald and Roland and all the colleagues in Krems for organizing this with me: On October 18 and 19, leading experts from science and industry will meet at the Complexity Science Hub to discuss how to ensure a resilient supply of phosphorus and how to use it sustainably.


Complex networks of material flows

M Raddant May 21, 2023

While the sources of the raw materials we use are mostly well documented, the dependencies from the point of the user are often less well known. For the case of phospohorus there is for example an apparent gap in the dis-aggragted material flows analysis before the creation of bio-mass. In this working paper (together with Martin Bertau and Gerald Steiner) we suggest how trade data can be used to overcome this deficiency.
