  7. Turning Wastewater Sludge Into Energy And Mineral Salts

    A system developed by EPFL spin-off TreaTech can turn sludge from wastewater treatment plants into mineral salts – which could be used in fertilizer, for example – and biogas. The firm’s research is being funded by several private- and public-sector entities, and a large-scale pilot plant is now being built.

  8. Where There’s Waste There’s Fertilizer

    We all know plants need nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus. To give crops a boost, they are often put on fields as fertilizer. But we never talk about where the nutrients themselves come from. Phosphorus, for example, is taken from the Earth, and in just 100-250 years, we could be facing a terrible shortage. That is, unless scientists can find ways to recycle it.
