Nutrient recovery from wastewater streams; proceedings. (CD-ROM included)

International Conference on Nutrient Recovery From Wastewater Streams (2009: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) Ed. by Ken Ashley et al.

IWA Publishing


830 pages




This volume contains 70 papers originally presented at a May 2009 international conference dedicated to developing techniques, technologies, and processes to capture and recycle phosphorous (and, to a lesser degree, other useful molecules such as nitrogen and methane) from wastewater streams, both for environmental reasons and for maintaining the ability to meet global food demands. Some examples of topics discussed include elimination of eutrophication through resource recovery, wastewater treatment and the green revolution, quantifying phosphorous recovery potentials by full-scale process analysis and modeling, validation of a comprehensive chemical equilibrium model for predicting struvite precipitation, social and economic feasibility of struvite recovery from urine at the community level in Nepal, chemical recycling of phosphorous from piggery wastewater, phosphorous recovery from eluated sewage sludge ashes by nanofiltration, remediation of phosphorous from animal slurry, sewage treatment to remove ammonium ions by struvite precipitation, and treating solid dairy manure by using the microwave-enhanced advanced oxidation process. The CD-ROM contains electronic versions of the articles.
