Magnetic nanoparticles effective at removing phosphorus from poultry processing wastewater

Must read

ATLANTA — Excessive phosphorus in wastewater discharge from poultry processing plants can degrade water quality and harm aquatic life in adjacent waterways. This makes effective wastewater treatment to remove the phosphorus in effluent a top priority for poultry processors. Chemical precipitation is the removal method used by most processors, but it is expensive and results in the production of sludge, which must be disposed of, further adding to treatment costs. Novel technologies such as nanomaterials are now being studied as potentially low-cost and environmentally friendly wastewater treatment alternatives.
