Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner reports on the situation and significance of global phosphorus deposits. She states that France and Germany do not have their own reserves of phosphorus and have to import it for agriculture, as it is needed to fertilise arable land. She asks several questions on statistical data related to the use of phosphorus in agriculture. She is also interested in what plans the European Union might have to combat a shortage of phosphoruswhich might occur within a decade. As a possible solution she suggests collecting urine, which also contains phosphorus.
