Recovering a Valuable Nutrient From the Wastewater Stream

Phosphate recovery technology offered by Schwing Bioset can be tailored to meet each facility’s specific operating challenges

 

Resource recovery is a major trend in wastewater treatment — to the task of cleaning water, facility teams are adding the capture of energy and nutrients.

One increasingly popular type of technology is the capture of phosphorus as struvite, which has market value as a fertilizer additive. One entry in that sector is Schwing Bioset, which offers a phosphate and nitrogen recovery technology under license from Belgium-based NuReSys.

The offering is unique in that it is not necessarily designed to extract revenue from nutrient capture, although that option is available. The process is designed to be tailored to each facility’s objectives in dealing with phosphate-related issues.

Besides nutrient recovery, the process has the benefits of preventing buildup of struvite scale in treatment equipment and improving dewaterability in biosolids. Wim Moerman, chief technology officer for NuReSys, and Chuck Wanstrom, director of new business development with Schwing Bioset, talked about the technology in an interview with Treatment Plant Operator.

Phosphorus Removal and Nutrient Harvesting Continuing Education

 

Written by Eric Wanstrom, March 22, 2016

Schwing Bioset is pleased to announce the Schwing Bioset Phosphorus Removal and Nutrient Harvesting paper has received accreditation and official approval for continuing education credits in New York State.  

Schwing Bioset’s Nutrient recovery system recovers Ortho Phosphate and Ammonia Nitrogen from wastewater while offering great benefits to the treatment plant, not only by significantly reducing phosphorus in the waste stream, but also preventing unwanted scaling and accumulations, and creating a valuable end product.  The phosphorus forms a stable Struvite crystal that can be marketed and sold for beneficial reuse, thus keeping excess phosphorus out of the local waterways and helping close the phosphorus recycling loop.   

Engineers and operators can receive one (1) hour of CEU credits for attending a presentation on these topics.  Please contact us to schedule the presentation for your office or plant.
