Introduction
IntroductionWith the ongoing transition from wastewater treatment to resource recovery, water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) are deploying new process configurations that increasingly result in the production of concentrated sidestreams that can present new challenges for the facility, but also lend themselves opportunities to target and transform or harvest key constituents from within the water/nutrient/energy cycle.Sidestreams are defined as flows containing nutrients, solids, and organic or inorganic constituents that are generated within a WRRF, typically during biosolids processing. Common sidestreams include overflow from gravity thickeners, filtrate from belt filter presses (BFP) or gravity belt thickeners (GBT), centrate from thickening or dewatering centrifuge…
