  • Microalgae growth for nutrient recovery from sludge liquor and production of renewable bioenergy

    Proof-of-concept has been demonstrated for a process that will utilize nutrients from sludge liquor, natural light, and CO2 from biogas to grow microalgae at wastewater treatment plants. This process will reduce the impact of returning side-streams to the head of the plant. The produced algae will be fed to anaerobic digesters for increased biogas production. Dewatering of anaerobically digested ...

  • Using wastewater and high-rate algal ponds for nutrient removal and the production of bioenergy and biofuels

    This paper projects a positive outcome for large-scale algal biofuel and energy production when wastewater treatment is the primary goal. Such a view arises partly from a recent change in emphasis in wastewater treatment technology, from simply oxidising the organic matter in the waste (i.e. removing the biological oxygen demand) to removing the nutrients – specifically nitrogen and ...

  • Denmark’s Near-Zero-Waste Wonder

    Has this Danish community found the formula for environmentally friendly industry? When we look closely at systems in nature — coral reefs or rainforests, for instance — we see something we don’t often see in human systems: mutually beneficial relationships and energy flows among the various elements, such as air, water, rocks, soil, and plant and animal life. If we ...
