Aqua fons vitae - water as a source of life and irreplaceable component of the nature environment

Though the planet we inhabit is called Earth, what makes the third planet of our solar system unique is water. Most of this water (97.5 %), however, is saline, not directly available for human life. Only negligible amount of freshwater occurs in form of rivers, lakes or groundwater aquifers, systems that represent the main water source for all human well-being.

The BIG Phosphorus Conference and Exhibition - Removal & Recovery

Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 09:00 to Wednesday, July 5, 2017 - 17:00
The Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester

Phosphorus is a finite resource and there are many established techniques and technologies to recover it. Economic recovery is a huge challenge though and in many instances it is not financially viable unless there are other enabling drivers that allow the capital and operating cost deficits to be internalised. These include the nuisance associated with struvite precipitation, the impact of P on dewatering processes and broader benefits derived from reduced greenhouse gas emissions associated with reduced usaeg of Phosphorus fertilizers.
