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.
In parallel to the technical development, a business model for the entire nutrient recycling value chain will be defined, thus promoting the replicability and transferability of project results in other EU regions.
