A student research team at the University of South Florida has developed a novel system to treat extremely problematic wastes by recovering Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K) to create potentially high quality fertilizers while also generating energy (as methane) from the waste.  Fertilizers are sustainably created, offsetting any need to create conventional fertilizers. Conventional fertilizers require mining of important nutrients such as phosphate, which generates extremely harmful environmental impacts and often creates wastelands on the mine site.  Funds will be used for the next phase of the project.
