Opening September 2022 the Phosphate Data and Knowledge Hub will become a global clearing house for all relevant information pertaining to the phosphate cycle from mine to field and beyond. Phosphate as an non-substitutable component of all living organisms is a crucial resource for future food security and a major international trade good. P-DaKH as a co-operation between the Global Phosphorus Institute and the University for Continuing Education (Danube University) Krems is dedicated to collecting, analysing and providing reliable data on all stages of the phosphate cycle and to make scientific insight and expert knowledge available to policy makers, business leaders and the general public.
To understand the dynamics of the supply and the demand side, P-DaKH will take a leading role in global sustainable mineral resources management, aiming to provide “a right to know based" data hub, which includes unbiased and transparently generated open data banks on phosphate resources and reserves data. The P-data bank will be a ground-breaking innovation (compared to common data banks of national geological surveys, mining agencies and other institutions) as it focuses on the dynamics of future reserves and resources.
The future web presence of the Phosphate Data and Knowledge Hub will come online under www.p-dakh.org in short order. Until then the Transdisciplinary Laboratory Sustainable Mineral Resources provides our temporary home in the web.
In particular we invite you to peruse our past publications, all available from our host website.
Stay with us. The sustainable phosphorus future begins here.
