Brief description Australia urgently needs to recycle both water and nutrients to protect its rivers and sustain its agriculture. This project will yield a sustainable, energy-efficient treatment system for water reuse and nutrient recovery. The technology's greater economy and efficiency will benefit decentralised systems in urban centres and small sewage treatment plants in isolated communities alike by enabling greater water reuse and by reducing the environmental impact of waste discharges. It will be of immediate benefit to the Australian water industry and to exports. This project will strengthen links in water science between Australian and European institutions.
