State of Knowledge of the Use of Sorption Technologies for Nutrient Recovery from Municipal Wastewaters Nutrients

The depletion of global phosphate rock stores and the energy intensity of ammonia production provide motivation for identifying alternative sources of these essential nutrients. The recovery of nutrients from wastewaters may be a viable nutrient source. Adsorption offers a highly efficient and stable, low cost technology for phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) removal; desorption of the nutrients from the sorbent will allow phosphorus and nitrogen ...

Resource Recovery from Wastewater: A Research Agenda for Australia

Traditionally wastewater treatment involved the removal of pollutants from wastewater to allow it to be discharged to the environment. This initially concentrated on carbon removal, but as environmental requirements became more stringent it was expanded to cover nitrogen and phosphorus removal. With increasing energy costs, more stringent environmental discharge limits and greater implementation of water sensitive urban design the economic ...

Optimizing Biotreatment: Integrated Process Models and Control Strategies

The overall objective of this research project is to develop and implement model-based control strategies for improving biological treatment and document the methodology, benefits, and effort required. The project phase documented in this report include performing a literature review, installing extensive instrumentation at a full-scale advanced wastewater treatment facility, and developing real-time, dynamic models for biological nutrient ...

WEF/WERF Study Quantifying Nutrient Removal Technology Performance

The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) Nutrient Challenge Research Program and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) cooperated in a comprehensive study of nutrient removal plants designed and operated to meet very low levels of effluent N and P.  Both existing and new technologies are being adapted to meet requirements that are as low as 3 mg/L TN and 0.1 mg/L TP, and there is a need to define their capabilities and reliabilities in ...
