Transcript

  • 1. Workshop on Flexible Emission Fees:The Case for Phosphorus Arno Rosemarin Senior Research Fellow Stockholm Environment Institute Sept 15, 2011
  • 2. (Cordell, 2009)
  • 3. Geopolitical Imbalance Morocco monopoly Based on data from USGS 2011
  • 4. Prognosis for Depletion of Cheap Phosphorus Rosemarin et al 2011 International Fertilizer Society
  • 5. Supply Chain Losses: From Mine to Fork Opportunites for Flex FeesMining - fertilizer – agriculture – food industry – distribution – consumer – waste systems
  • 6. Applying Flex Fees toAgricultural SystemsImportant factors•Soil P levels•Livestock practices•Manure storage and use•Tillage practices•Cover crop protection•Green manure use•Buffer zones•Drainage•Fertilizer use map of P run off; livestock density largest variable
  • 7. Fee Instruments to ReducePhosphorus Surpluses per Unit Area Increase yields by pest control and soil improvement Soil sampling to determine P requirements Manure storage capacity Sophisticated P application equipment Erosion control – crop cover, low/no tillage Low P feed and phytase additive Manure export Composted manure for fertiliser Livestock density licenses Wageningen Univ/SEI 2010
  • 8. Fees to Promote Recycling ofPhosphorus Tax relief on source separation systems and waste-based inputs Agroproduct surcharge to be used for recycling Use of Al or Mg instead of Fe to precipitate P in wastewater Renewable P fertilizer (from recovered P) Struvite and urine production Reuse of slaughter waste in agriculture
  • 9. Other tax instruments Tax on unessential uses of P-rock if there are substitutes Tax on P-intensive crop-based consumption bioenergy Tax on P-intensive meat and dairy consumption
  • 10. Stockholm Environment Institute www.sei-international.org www.ecosanres.org
