There are three very important elements necessary for phosphorus resource recovery: properties of wastewater treatment plants, phosphorus recycling technology, and users' needs. We think that phosphorus recycling advances only after all three elements are functioning effectively. Then, we prepared a flow chart of the studies of these elements, and arranged phosphorus recycling technology for the HAP method, MAP method, ash alkali extraction method and partially-reduced method, which are results of fertilizer registration in Japan. The research results have been summarized in the Handbook on Phosphorus Recycling, which has been prepared for sewage works administrators.

Keywords: HAP method; MAP method; Phosphorus recycling technology; alkali extraction method; fertilizer; incineration ash; partially-reduced method; wastewater treatment plant
