Our aim is to manufacture clean and safe recycled fertilizer from municipal waste-water sludge.
Activities of the project are to:
· Evaluate technologies for waste waters and sludge treatment à pilot-scale tests
· Prepare recycled fertilizer products from waste water sludge and dairy waste water
· Create business model by using results of feasibility studies of different sludge and waste
water treatment technologies
