  • Phosphorus shortage solved through sewage recovery

    Phosphate is a key component in food production and an important element in fertilisers. The expectation is that easily extractable reserves of phosphate will be exhausted within fifty to ninety years due to the growing demand. Grontmij is working on finding a solution and on the more effective use of phosphate. The recovery and reuse of phosphate from waste water plays an important role in this. ...

  • Phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge using Aquacritox supercritical water oxidation process

    Sewage sludge is a potential source of energy. A kilogram of dried sewage sludge contains approximately 20,000 BTU’s of energy. The challenge with releasing this energy is that sewage sludge, when collected from the bottom of a clarifier is 99% water. In order to release the energy present through gasification, pyrolysis or incineration, the water must be removed before oxidation in air can ...
