In a few years, the recovery of phosphorus from sewage sludge will be mandatory for German sewage treatment plants covering a population equivalent of 50.000 or higher. Gelsenwasser and Ragn-Sells innovation company EasyMining have therefore together developed a concept for operating the Ash2Phos-process. This concept will now be further realised with the objective of setting up the first Ash2Phos recovery plant in Germany.
- It is very important that the technical solution chosen is sustainable both from an energy efficiency perspective, economically and in regard to the chemicals necessary for the process. Above all, the recovered phosphorus must be of a high enough quality that meets the needs of the market. EasyMining and their solution delivers on all these aspects, says Henning R. Deters, CEO of GELSENWASSER AG.
For Gelsenwasser, the most important aspects of a partnership are resource protection, sustainability and long-term economic efficiency and these focus areas have been key components in their core business of water supply for decades.
