The practice of Solar Water Disinfection (SODIS) basically involves just leaving water sitting in direct sunlight, where a combination of heat and UV rays […]

EQUIPMENT TURNING SEWERAGE TO USEFUL PHOSPHORUS

Ostara reactors harvest phosphorus from raw sewage Here’s something rather important that you might not know: there may be a worldwide phosphorus shortage within the next few decades. The majority of the world’s phosphorus is currently mined from non-renewable phosphate rock deposits, and widely used in crop fertilizers. Scientists have begun to question just how […]

SEWERAGE PLANTS WITH HIGH ENERGY SAVINGS

Energy-Efficient Sewage Plants Science (Aug. 22, 2009) — High-rate digestion with microfiltration is state-of-the-art in large sewage plants. It effectively removes accumulated sludge and produces biogas to generate energy. A study now reveals that even small plants can benefit from this process. Sewage plants remove organic matter from wastewater. If the accumulating sludge decays, biogas […]
