Workshop: Wastewater as fertilisers resources

Struvite workshop

26/01/22, struvite workshop, click here to join.

The current management of WWTPs doesn’t carry out an active recovery of essential elements for life such as phosphorus and nitrogen. The implementation of technologies that allow the use of streams rich in nutrients implies an improvement in wastewater management and an opportunity for local development. The visit to the phosphorus precipitation plant (Aquavit) will allow highlighting the problems and strengths of these processes that support the transformation of WWTPs into biorefineries for the future.


To introduce the attendees to the principles on the operation of phosphorus crystallization technologies, as well as the challenges and possibilities of this technology, applied to urban wastewater treatment.


  • Mr. Ludwig Hermann, President of the ESPP (European Sustainable Phosphorus Platform)
  • Mrs. Maria del Carmen Lobo Bédmar, Researcher at IMIDRA (Instituto Madrileño de Investigación y Desarrollo Rural, Agrario y Alimentario)
  • Mr. Vicente Aguilera Ávila, Head of operation and maintenance at YII (Canal Isabel II)


  • LH – Natural and Secondary Resources of Phosphorus – Promising P Recovery and Recycling Technologies
  • MCL – Struvite, a sustainable source of phosphorus for agricultural soils
  • VA – Description of the struvite production plant at the southern WWTP in Madrid.
