In an era of sustainable thinking, wastes are now seen as resources.
This coupled with increasingly stringent nutrient regulations, has led to
increased interest in recovering the nutrients from wastewater. Recovering
nutrients can offer several benefits including 1) revenue from a saleable
fertilizer product, 2) improving operations by reducing nutrient loads in return
streams, and 3) preventing the formation of struvite. The webcast will provide
an overview of nutrient recovery and discuss the drivers for implementing
nutrient recovery and what a nutrient recovery system entails.
