Struvite crystallization technology is being widely applied in full-scale due to a surge in nutrient demand and phosphate price increases. Past investigations on struvite crystallization focused on process efficiency and thermodynamics, and less on kinetics, while mainly using fluidized bed type crystallizer. In this work, nucleation and growth kinetic data were measured using stirred vessel. The primary and secondary nucleation was measured in synthetic wastewater, and crystal growth in… CONTINUE READING
