The intent of this paper is to delineate the technologies related to energy and nutrient recovery from wastewater treatment plants. Considering the process flow diagram of a typical wastewater treatment plant, these efforts focus on various areas that require specific attention to achieve the resource recovery goals. There are two broad categories of resource recovery; energy recovery and nutrient recovery, with focus on the liquid and solids treatment as follows:

1) Energy Recovery from Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant

a) Anaerobic Technologies for Biogas Recovery from Solids Stream


b) Biogas–fueled Energy Recovery System


c) Thermal Processing of Biosolids with Energy Recovery


d) Energy Recovery from Liquid Stream


2) Nutrient Recovery from Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants

a) Phosphorus


b) Ammonia


c) Organic Carbon
