Catalogue of phosphorus recovery technologies
The ESPP Catalogue of Phosphorus and Nitrogen Recovery Technologies summarises a number of phosphorus recovery technologies, particularly targeting operational information on processes today operating full-scale for P-recovery from sewage, but also including a number of processes which concern P-recovery from manure (full scale), nitrogen recovery (full scale) or R&D scale P-recovery from sewage. The catalogue aims to specify input materials for each process, output products, the fate of iron/aluminium and of heavy metals or other contaminants, a summary of the process steps, current operating status (full-scale or pilot operation at how many sites, capacity and duration of operation) and websites of technology suppliers.
