Creative Solutions for the Recovery of Commodities from Wastewater

Webcast Description:

Nutrients, energy, (new) water, and biosolids are established resources that can be recovered from wastewater – but are there other value-added products that can be extracted from wastewater? This web seminar showcases WERF’s latest research on the recovery of additional commodities from water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) including carbon-based products, bioplastic, bioisoprene, plasmids, and rare earth elements.
