Within WP2 in the Neptune project, promising technologies were developed and further investigated for sustainable wastewater treatment, where wastewater is regarded as a resource rather than as a waste. These technologies comprise microbial fuel cells for energy recuperation, denitrification and production of added value product. For the removal of micropollutants two new technologies were developed. Ferrate oxidation can be used for the combined removal of pharmaceuticals and phosphate, and with biogenic manganese oxides it is possible to remove pharmaceuticals both chemically with manganese oxidation and biologically with manganese-oxidizing bacteria. Phosphor and heavy metal recovery with pyrolysis and polymer production from sewage sludge are two techniques developed for sludge revalorization. This deliverable 2.1 Novel technologies for wastewater and sludge treatment describes the above mentioned technologies. With the new insight obtained during the Neptune project an up-to-date picture of these novel technologies could be provided..
