Innovation for a better world
The increase of global food demand and environmental problems associated with conventional fertilisers has created an impetus for innovation.
By having an additional coating layer, fertilisers can have a slower and more stable release rate of nutrients, thereby improving crop production and environmental status.
We have suggested spray drying as the production method, which has already been extensively used in food and pharmaceutical industries, and using gum arabic as the coating layer. Overall, this project aims to use the spray drying method to produce innovative fertilisers containing single nutrients to address global food demand and environmental problems.
