Phosphorus recovery by liquid-liquid extraction

JiaQian Jiang, Onesmus Mwabonje

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is acknowledged that phosphorus removal is more crucial in comparison with nitrogen removal for preventing algae glooming and eutrophication. Chemical and biological methods are common methods for the P removal. Excessive sludge production and difficulties of recovering phosphorus are concerns in terms of sustainable waste management. A liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) process is thus considered for the study aiming at recovering phosphorus from wastewater in a sustainable way.
