  1. 1. Phosphorus recycling from wastewater to agriculture using reactive filter media

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Victor Cucarella Cabañas; Gunno Renman; Dan Berggren Kleja; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Filtra P; phosphorus; Polonite; recycling; sorption; wollastonite; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Water in nature and society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : This thesis focused on testing the suitability of reactive filter media used for phosphorus (P) removal from wastewater as fertilizers, thus recycling P to agriculture. The work compared the P sorption capacity of several materials in order to assess their suitability as a source of P for plants. READ MORE

  4. 4. Phosphorus removal in reactive filter materials factors affecting the sorption capacity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Charlotte Nilsson; Gunno Renman; Lena Johansson Westholm; Aleksandra Drizo; Annelie Hedström; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Phosphorus is an essential component in all living organisms; it is one of the components of the DNA and the key element in the energy supplying molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Throughout the history, humans have been recycling phosphorus to agriculture; thereby increasing the yield, examples of this includes the burning of plants and the use of manure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Phosphorus availability and microbial respiration across biomes  from plantation forest to tundra

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet, Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Camilla Esberg; Reiner Giesler; David A. Wardle; Bente J. Graae; Dan Binkley; [2010]
    Keywords : phosphorus availability; microbial bioassay; soil respiration; microbial growth rate; Hedley fractionation; soil sorption; weathered soils; boreal forest; subarctic and tundra;

    Abstract : Phosphorus is the main limiting nutrient for plant growth in large areas of the world and the availability of phosphorus to plants and microbes can be strongly affected by soil properties. Even though the phosphorus cycle has been studied extensively, much remains unknown about the key processes governing phosphorus availability in different environments. READ MORE
