Nutrient Cycle

The Green Alliance published a report on the Nutrient Cycle: Closing the Loop. The report is intended to raise the political profile of the nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) cycles. The N and P cycles are much lower down the political agenda than the carbon cycle. However, due to links with climate change (nitrous oxide), effects on biodiversity and increased costs to water customers due to water treatment, Green Alliance believes there is a strong case for moving the nutrient cycle up the political agenda.
