The ability to recover phosphorus, a valuable element, has been a key aspect of new advances in phosphorus removal and recovery technologies in this sustainability-focused era. In addition, many wastewater treatment plants are being challenged to achieve ultra-low effluent phosphorus concentrations. With those goals in mind, a highly efficient adsorption media has recently been developed along with a tertiary treatment process that integrates the removal of phosphorus, the recovery of the captured phosphorus, and the in situ regeneration of the adsorption media. Pilot testing of this integrated process has demonstrated its ability to recover phosphorus as a high-grade fertilizer material while achieving ultra-low effluent phosphorus concentrations.
