Solutions to the “Wastewater Treatment & Ressource Recovery” challenge
There has been a drastic demand for phosphorus. Phosphorus deposits are entirely dependent on imports and are therefore vulnerable to market fluctuations. One of many measures for reducing dependency is the recovery of Phosphorus from often unexploited national Phosphorus sources. Our solution combines two waste products, aluminium foil and depulped coffee cherries, to recover phosphorus from municipal wastewater!

Worldwide about 42% of the land is affected by drought and in India, it’s more than 50%, of which 6% is exceptionally dry. At the same time, the rising population is directly proportional to the demand for crop production, which necessitates a massive amount of water. We therefore propose Lignin based Bio-absorbent Capsules as a green and sustainable solution to increase soil moisture retention potential and crop yield.
Most of the wastewater treatment plants in South Korea are managed by the government. After several treatment processes, the treated water with qualified quality is discharged into surface water. We thought this discharged water from the wastewater treatment plant can go directly through further treatment processes and used for cosmetics products.
