This work provides insight that can help advance the use of carbon recovery technologies at WRRFs, and demonstrates the use of a multi-platform approach to facilitating high value carbon recovery from wastestreams. This platform utilizes volatile fatty acids (VFAs) as a building block, since VFAs are a remarkably flexible feedstock that can be used towards the production of high-value commodities and chemicals like lipids, biomethanol, or polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs). An Excel-based tool is included that utilities can use to consider the economic benefits/drawbacks of implementing carbon recovery. Published by WRF. 44 pages. Online PDF. (2018) (#4821)
