Technical details

Effluent containing high concentrations of phosphorus are fed to a continuous stirred tank reactor where rapid mixing is achieved by using a special mixing system : Turbomix.

Struvite precipitation is initiated by increasing the pH and by addition of a magnesium salt.

An integrated lamella settler ensures the separation of the treated effluent and the produced struvite prills. These are pumped and directed to a draining and storage facility before they are sent to the packaging unit.
