Nutrients from wastewater to be used as fertiliser in future farming

In future it will be possible for us to extract nutrients from our wastewater, to be used as fertiliser in agriculture for example. In an ongoing research project at Mälardalen University (MDH) this possibility is being explored, with a view simultaneously to create a circular society where we recycle both water and nutrients.
