Method for Phosphorus Removal and Recovery from Municipal Wastewater
National University of Singapore, Singapore, Singapore
This technology relates to a novel combination of processes to overcome problems inherent in chemical precipitation and enhanced biological removal for phosphorus removal and recovery. Up to 99% removal of phosphorus from municipal wastewater can be achieved, in addition to a typical biological process for municipal wastewater treatment.
Primary Application Area: Environmental, Water & Waste
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Current technologies require the addition of chemicals (eg Mg, Ca, NaOH, sand) during phosphorus recovery. This consumes resources which may be used for other purposes. This technology doesn't require the addition of other chemicals into the process and allows recovery of P alongside the biological treatment of municipal wastewater.
