Phosphorus Recovery by Glatt PHOS4green

Waste-free phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge ashes for high-performance fertilizers that comply with the German Fertilizer Ordinance (DüMV) / Regulation EG No. 2019/1009

The Sewage Sludge Ordinance has triggered major changes throughout Germany: Phosphorus recovery is mandatory by law and‚ application of the sludge directly to the soil is no longer permitted. Accordingly, sewage plant operators must review their concepts for sewage sludge disposal and, if necessary, reconsider them. The challenge is to create sustainable solutions that ensure sewage sludge utilization is viable well in to the future.

Other countries have also responded to the global shortage of phosphorus with regulations, and further rules will follow. With viable innovations that close the phosphorus material cycle, Germany can take on a pioneering role in this critical initiative.

With PHOS4green, we have developed an innovative patent-protected process to recover the essential nutrient phosphorus from sewage sludge ashes and use it for new phosphate or compound fertilizers.

Benefit from PHOS4green:

Produce ready-to-use fertilizers from phosphorus recovery from local resources!

Use our PHOS4green process to close the nutrient cycle!

Fulfill the legal obligation to recycle phosphorus economically from sewage sludge!

This distinguishes Glatt technology from other processes:
