“Last week Schiphol Airport spread fertilizer granules on its grassland that were recovered from wastewater from the toilets from airplanes. The wastewater has been treated in a pilot struvite reactor at the airport’s wastewater treatment plant (wwtp) that is operated by Evides Industrial Water. The field test was carried out by Schiphol Airport, Evides industrial water and KWR water cycle research institute.
Permanent struvite reactor Given the low concentrations of pathogens measured, researchers on the pilot project have concluded that the application is feasible.”
