Workshop

Farm-to-Watershed Phosphorus (F2W-P) Modeling

One of the classic environmental management dilemmas is that we often understand and evaluate systems at large scales (watersheds, sub-basins), yet management of the landscape most often occurs at the field or even sub-field scale. In the Farm-to-Watershed Phosphorus (F2W-P) Modeling Workshop, we will bring together practitioners to discuss how to dovetail existing in-field phosphorus measurements and modeled phosphorus pools.

Members of the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance are invited to this day-long (noon to noon) workshop. Please contact Matt Scholz for details.

Phosphorus Recovery from Water Resource Recovery Facilities

#

Materials that were traditionally characterized as waste are often replete with commodities ready to be extracted and valorized. These “wastes” carry everything from precious metals to energy-rich organics to nutrients, such as phosphorus, that can be harvested and returned to the circular economy. A number of companies have seized upon this opportunity and developed technologies that advance this beneficial reuse of phosphorus.

On May 24, the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance held a 90-minute webinar on this topic. Panelists Matt Kuzma of Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies, Jeff Dawson of Renewable Nutrients, Mike Dougherty of Lystek International, and Jordan Lind of CLEARAS Water Recovery joined us for a discussion of the challenges and opportunities in harvesting phosphorus resources from wastewater streams.

Residuals And Biosolids

Engaging Public and Private Sectors for Integrated Resource Recovery

WEF in Phoenix

North America’s longest running and most successful residuals and biosolids management conference came to Phoenix, Arizona, May 15-18, 2018. The conference provided attendees an exclusive opportunity to network with researchers, thought leaders, and practitioners, while exploring unprecedented commercial and technical opportunities in biosolids.

This conference was held by the Water Environment Federation in cooperation with the Arizona Water Environment Association, The Water Research Foundation, and the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance.

Members of the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance received WEF-member pricing to the event.

Phosphorus Forum 2018

phosphates_2018_530_115

The Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance convened our second Phosphorus Forum event on February 27, 2018, in warm and sunny Tempe, Arizona. A network of organizations from across the phosphorus value chain gathered to explore holistic solutions to vexing phosphorus sustainability issues. Keynote speakers included Drs. Sally Rockey, Executive Director of the Foundation for Food and Agricultural Research, and Paul Fixen, retired Senior Vice President of the International Plant Nutrition Institute.

Below are links to PDFs of the slide decks used during the presentations at the Phosphorus Forum 2018 event.

Recent weather events around the globe–from intense hurricanes in the US to massive flooding in Asia–conform to the predictions of climate change models. If extreme weather continues to be the new normal, how will an intensification of storms affect phosphorus flows through the environment and how can we prepare for the increased phosphorus loads? Panelists Dr. Phil Haygarth, Professor in the Lancaster Environment Centre of Lancaster University, and Dr. Laura Johnson, Director of the National Center for Water Quality Research at Heidelberg University, joined us for a discussion of how climate change is impacting and will continue to change phosphorus flows, and what cities and farms will need to do to protect against increased phosphorus pollution of our waterways.
