Phosphorus is a particularly vital resource – no form of life on our planet can survive without it. And yet phosphorus is in short supply across the world and global reserves of this vital element are located in just a small number of countries. The German legislator has decided, therefore, that this finite raw material must be recovered from municipal sewage sludge from 2029 onwards. Thanks to REMONDIS’ TetraPhos® process, there is already an economically viable way of doing this today. The world’s first ever industrial-scale phosphorus recovery plant was completed in 2021 as part of a Public Private Partnership with the City of Hamburg.
