Selective nutrient recovery from wastewaters and energy production using microalgae

Industrial Phycology and Swansea University were awarded an ABSIG SPARK Award in 2013 for a project on "Selective Nutrient Recovery from Wastewaters and Energy Production Using Microalga."

Industrial Phycology has developed a new process which enables algae for the first time to be used at industrial scales as a wastewater treatment and nutrient recovery process with the goal of producing polished effluents that meet the challenging targets set by incoming legislation.

By working with Swansea University Industrial Phycology was able to carry out a successful demonstration of its new process. Swansea’s support also allowed Industrial Phycology monitor additional performance parameters through the use of equipment they would not otherwise have had access to. This maximised the value of its demonstration and allowed it to develop a new relationship with an academic partner.
