P Summit calls for a 'new alchemy' around phosphorus and food
Date:2/12/2011

nd postdoctoral students as part of the School of Life Sciences' Frontiers in Life Sciences conference series, the gathering has spurred a diverse series of new collaborations: the development of a collective consensus statement, the launch of a global resource network, an art show and a book project.

The consensus statement, released Feb. 10, reflects the optimism coming out of the summit around solution-building. It states that "by closing the human phosphorus cycle and transforming wastes into resources and uncertainty into security, humanity can implement a 'new alchemy' in which people become more secure and enjoy greater well-being in a healthy environment."

Among the points highlighted in the consensus statement are: http://sols.asu.edu/frontiers/2011/consensus.php

  • Call for education, efficient use of P on the farm and protection of water quality and fisheries
  • Couple P sustainability solutions to those for other global challenges, such as water, energy and other elements
  • Reclaim P from food waste, livestock production, and human wastewater in cities
  • Develop affordable access to fertilizers for farmers in the developing world

The workshops, poster sessions and panels held at the ASU summit will also fuel a P-book. Book chapters will define the scale and scope of P sustainability problem, develop and communicate possible solutions for achieving sustainable P use. Contributors hope it help raise public awareness about the issue in an accessible way, locally and globally.

The project will be led by summit organizers Karl Wyant and Jessica Corman, life sciences doctoral students in ASU's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and James Elser, Regents' Professor and expert in biogeochemical cycling of phosphorus.

"Citizens don't have to look far to see that the negative consequences of unsustainable P use are al
