Abstract:

The ability to achieve an effluent having a phosphorus concentration below 0.1 mg/L is becoming increasingly important. Nine alternative technologies that can be considered for these reclamation and reuse applications are developed. A survey of full-scale plants utilizing the developed alternatives is conducted and presented. Both membrane and non-membrane alternatives are compared. The paper includes a discussion of the functional mechanisms related to phosphorus removal to low concentrations, as well as a discussion of the breakdown of the phosphorus concentration into its soluble, particulate and colloidal constituents.
