Phosphorus Recovery from Animal Manures using Optimized Struvite Precipitation

Abstract

The over-application of phosphorus, as manure by animal feeding operations, is a threat to surface water quality. Concentration of animal feeding operations and over application of manures to cropland has lead to a build-up of phosphorus on many farms (Greaves et al., 1999). Relative to crop needs, manure slurries contain higher levels of phosphorus than… (More)
