  4. Direct Conversion of Organic Municipal Solid Waste to Lipids using an Extremophilic Fungus

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: 13NCERC2

    The United States produces significant quantities of waste materials that are discarded. These wastes include organic components of municipal solid waste (MSW), biosolids from wastewater treatment plants and agricultural wastes. The release of these materials and their byproducts into the environment can have serious consequences, such as pollution of ground and surface water resources and spread ...

  5. Phosphorus recovery and high efficiency biological nutrient removal from wastewater with an innovative aerobic granular sludge sequencing batch reactor process

    SBC: DTEC SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Project Summary: Phosphorus is a nutrient essential to modern food production and to all life on earth, yet phosphate rock from which phosphate fertilizer is produced is a finite resource, which is rapidly being depleted. At the same time, excess phosphorus from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and runoff from farms is causing eutrophication and the resultant degradation water quality. There is ...

  6. Novel Nutrient Recovery Process from Wastewater

    SBC: LJJW AQUASOLUTION, LLC            Topic: 14NCER4A

    In a typical wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), the anaerobic digestion process generates a sidestream with high level of ammonia (NH3-N) and ortho-phosphate (ortho-P), which contributes to as much as 20-40 percent of total nutrient loading to the main plant stream. Traditionally, the sidestream is returned to the main stream and treated in biological nutrient removal processes, at significant cos ...
