Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance

Our work is made possible in part through memberships and contributions from key stakeholders. We invite organizations involved in phosphorus sustainability to and join our alliance of members. The membership is open to all organizations that support our mission, including those working in phosphates, biomaterials recycling, water and wastewater treatment, animal agriculture, crop agriculture, and the food and beverage supply chain.


Member Benefits

Members in the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance are entitled to the following benefits:

  • Priority exposure in the Phosphorus Forum, an annual stakeholder meeting centered on phosphorus sustainability (includes one free ticket). Phosphorus Forum presentations are re-broadcast on YouTube for even wider visibility.
  • Visibility as a thought leader in your industry through presentations in our Sustainable Phosphorus Webinar Series and our Phosphorus Science Now! series. Our webinars are re-broadcast on YouTube for even wider visibility.
  • Participation in research conducted by the NSF-funded, multi-institutional STEPS center for phosphorus sustainability.
  • Access to working groups that tackle technical, legislative, institutional and societal hurdles to implementing phosphorus management innovations.
  • International recognition among regulators, investors, and the public as a leader in phosphorus sustainability via online and in-person outlets (e.g. social media, conference talks).
  • Interaction and knowledge sharing with like-minded organizations from across the phosphorus value chain, including through participation on our Board of Directors, if elected. Our staff participates in a number of industry working groups and can help introduce your ideas.
  • Discounts to events hosted by partnering organizations.

We’d like to thank our members for their support

The organizations below are the founding and current members that have supported our mission of being North America’s central forum and advocate for the sustainable use, recovery, and recycling of phosphorus in the food system. Members of the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance generously provide it with financial and other resources to sustain operations. While members of the Alliance do work in areas relevant to phosphorus sustainability and adhere to its code of conduct, membership does not imply the Alliance’s endorsement of their products or services.
