Boosting synergies between water and agriculture sectors
LIFE ENRICH will bring this objective to the practise by developing an innovative treatment train integrating leading-edge technologies that will enable an efficient recovery of both Nitrogen and Phosphorus contained in the wastewater, as ammonium salts and struvite, respectively. The products obtained will be blended in order to obtain suitable fertilizers for the target crops.
The exponential growth of the human population and economy causes wide-scale pollution with long-lasting effects and implies each time more intense consumption of limited natural resources. In this context, one of the most effective ways to minimize environmental impacts is to transform the economy built upon produce, use and throw away basis into a circular one. This is precisely the way the LIFE ENRICH plays.
