Project description

Almost every production process is confronted with wastestreams. This organic wastestreams can be valorised in the form of energy and fertilizers. Together with sewage as a dilution matrix, a reliable treatment scheme can be constructed. The focus is on the production of energy, recovery of nutrient and production of tap water from a non-traditional source.
