Resource Recovery from Municipal Sewage Plants: An Energy-Water-Nutrients Nexus for Developing Countries

Musaida Mercy Manyuchi, C. Mbohwa, Edison Muzenda

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Water, energy, and food are basic requirements for life, and this book presents solutions for obtaining these from sewage wastewater treatment plants. It describes the optimal recovery of value-added products from municipal sewage plants in developing countries, and explains how the plants’ operations can become both economical and sustainable. Further, it shows how the clean effluent that is obtained is then suitable for agricultural use in the production of bio-fertilizers, and graywater for irrigation, and how the recovered biogas could be used for energy and heating needs. Practical case studies from three separate sewage plants are presented to illustrate the processes involved.
