Development of an innovative sustainable process for simultaneous sewage sludge fluidized bed combustion and REcovery of PHOsphorus in a Ca bed

Project description

A sustainable alternative to phosphorus recovery

Phosphorus is a vital nutrient for plant growth. Most of the phosphorus used comes from phosphate rock, a finite resource formed over millions of years in the earth's crust. Phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge is a promising alternative. Funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the RECaPHOS project is working on a novel method for recovering phosphorus through the thermochemical reaction of sewage sludge. The project aims to optimise and evaluate the new method and provide rules and data for a successful scale-up. Advanced models will be used to investigate the thermodynamic and chemical process taking place. Experimental data from institution facilities and literature will inform these models.
