Technology

NRU is changing the way we manage nutrients in wastewater: from waste to resource.

Wastewater contains nutrients that, in high concentrations, are harmful to aquatic ecosystems. However, these nutrients have value for agriculture and other industries – so why are we treating them like waste?

At NRU, we see a better path for these valuable nutrients. With a foundation in chemistry and soil science, we’ve developed technologies to recover nutrients from wastewater in forms that are ready to be used as nutrient fertilizers and industrial precursors.

Check out the Phosphorus Recovery and Nitrogen Recovery pages to learn more about each nutrient recovery process.
