Management of Nutrients for Reuse (MaNuRe) aims to address the need in livestock agriculture to better manage and reuse both water and nutrient resources. MaNuRe is a multi-university, multi-disciplinary project to develop, assess, and support the best in manure treatment technology.
With the combination of continued global population growth and trend of extreme climate events and the resulting variability in reliable water resources, the requirement of water recycling becomes an integral part of agriculture wastewater resource management. Important nutrients are also lost to wastewaters, but could be recycled and reused for food production. Water treatment and nutrient needs vary geographically and change based on production, thus the user-driven strategy inherently demands a systems-based, flexible decision-making approach.
