The European Union is largely dependent on imports of white phosphorus (P4), a strategic raw material for the food and pharmaceutical industries. To tackle this challenge, the four-year EU-funded project FlashPhos – led by the University of Stuttgart – will recover at a large scale high-quality white phosphorus and other raw materials using sewage sludge as input material. These raw materials have strategic applications for the European chemical, metal, and cement industry.

Raw materials are essential for our daily lives.

It is important to ensure the security and sustainability of their supply.

The European Critical Raw Materials Act will:

☑️ Identify strategic projects along the supply chain
☑️ Build strategic reserves for our Union
