WebFOCUS Report
Beskrivning av projektet
The NITRO project will estimate the potential of nitrogen recovery during thermal drying of sewage sludge and similar-in-origin biosolids. By doing so, nitrogen fixation using industrial energy-intensive processes can be avoided and recycling of reactive nitrogen be improved. A wide range of organic- and mineral-based adsorbents will be studied with the ultimate aim of nitrogen capture and consequent recycling. Finally, the project will estimate synergetic combinations of the recovery process aiming at increased nitrogen recovery and estimate the overall environmental impact of the systematic change brought with the novel recovery concept.
