Towards a Renewable Future: Assessing Resource Recovery as a Viable Treatment Alternative: Case Studies of Facilities Employing Extractive Nutrient Recovery Technologies
This research characterizes factors that influence the adoption of extractive resource recovery systems and provides guidance on the implementation of these technologies at water resource recovery facilities. The report presents a compilation of case studies of facilities at various stages of implementation of extractive nutrient recovery technologies in the form of struvite crystallization, as struvite harvesting technologies via chemical crystallization have been found to be the most mature extractive nutrient recovery option available to date. The data collected was used in the development of the Tool for Evaluating Resource Recovery-Phosphorus (TERRY – Phosphorus). Published by WERF. 140 pages. Online PDF. (2015)
