NutriTrade Policy Brief 3 Nutrient Offsets – examines legal aspects of utilizing nutrient offsets in environmental permitting processes. The Weser-ruling of the European Court of Justice changed the playground for environmental permitting by strengthening the legal status of the Water Framework Directive. If an economic activity increases pollution that poses pressure on critical water quality elements, it cannot be granted an environmental permit. This stance does protect waters from pollution, but making it actually compatible with constantly evolving economic activities calls for innovative regulatory tools such as nutrient offsets.

NutriTrade Policy Brief 1 Gypsum Amendment and Large Scale Use – discusses the feasibility of gypsum amendment for large-scale use. Drawing from the results and experience of a large-scale pilot organized in Southwest Finland, the Policy Brief provides an overview of the potential field area and logistics if gypsum amendment would be used widely in Southern Finland. It also addresses what to take into account when considering gypsum application elsewhere in the Baltic Sea region.

NutriTrade Policy Brief 2 Gypsum Amendment and Policy – provides recommendations targeted to agricultural policy makers, in order to facilitate and support the large-scale use of gypsum. It recommends that HELCOM includes gypsum amendment in its recommendations and that gypsum is included in the national agricultural policies of the EU member states.
