Abstract

Prior investigations show that microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) can be used for post treatment of biogas plant digestate. The objective of this research is to evaluate the nutrient (i.e. nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) recovery potential of MF and UF. MF and UF membranes were tested on biogas plant digestates. The obtained concentrates can be used as concentrated liquid fertilizers in agriculture, the resulting permeate for irrigation.
