This will allow companies, such as oil groups, brewers, pulp, paper, steel makers, food processing and waste recovery businesses and municipal wastewater treatment plants, to tune and adapt their treatment systems more effectively, and is expected to save them up to 25 per cent of their operating costs.
It also supports the improved recovery of valuable and recyclable products, such as nutrients, biogas, and volatile fatty acids that can be used in biofertilisers and biofuels. The Company believes this could result in new sustainable technologies in future.
One early application of the technology will be to make the removal and reuse of phosphorus from wastewater plants, which is widely used in fertiliser, more environmentally friendly and effective.
Current phosphorus extraction methods use chemicals that bind to the phosphorus and precipitate it. However, it is difficult and expensive to break the connection between the binder and the phosphorus. AquaInSilico uses a mathematically-modelled biological approach to remove phosphorus, based on controlling the operating variables. As a result, the process reduces the use of chemicals and energy, and produces phosphorus that can be sold.
This reduces the risk of environmental harm from phosphorus leaching into waterways from wastewater sludge. The phosphorus itself can be resold for use in fertilisers, and other industrial applications.
