Oslo, Norway: Felleskjøpet Agri, one of the main cooperatives in Norwegian agriculture, and the Norwegian technology company, N2 Applied, enter into a collaboration to offer a sustainable fertiliser solution on Norwegian farms.

The companies have signed a two-year letter of intent with the common goal of offering Norwegian farmers technology that processes livestock manure while recycling nutrients and reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and ammonia.

– In our sustainability strategy, it is a stated ambition that Felleskjøpet will strengthen the offer of advice and services within good agronomy, precision agriculture, as well as balanced and correct fertilization, so that the farmer gets the best out of the soil. This letter of intent is an important step in this work. It is also about a product range that is future-oriented, while at the same time it will give customers better finances and results. We look forward to working more closely with N2 Applied going forward, says Stig Atle Viken, Head of I-mek at Felleskjøpet Agri.

The livestock manure is processed locally on the farm using plasma technology to make NEO (nitrogen enriched organic fertiliser), which is an efficient fertiliser as well as environmental and climate friendly.

– If agriculture is to achieve the goals it has set itself both in terms of climate and environment, food production must to a greater extent become circular, electric and local. Our technology contributes directly to this task, says Trond Lund, Head of Business Development at N2 Applied.
