Abstract

This report presents a review of extractive nutrient recovery technologies with an emphasis on bridging the knowledge gap faced by utilities when considering nutrient recovery for nutrient management. The report provides a framework for selecting a nutrient recovery option and, depending on the conditions at a water resource recovery facility, establishes whether keeping phosphorus in biosolids is more or less beneficial than concentrating it in an inorganic phase such as struvite. The interactive Excel-based Matrix summarizes the key findings from WERF’s NTRY1R12 literature review on nutrient- based recovery technologies. Published by WERF. 122 pages. Online PDF with an interactive electronic technology summary matrix. (2015)

Originally funded as WERF project NTRY1R12a.
