Project summary on EU CORDIS website.
Dewatered sewage sludge or other organic wastes containing P.
P4 (white phosphorus)
Input materials are dried and ground, then flash gasified at high temperatures with CaO (lime) as slagging agent to produce elemental phosphorus (P4).
The process claims to also produce a cement material and a valorisable iron metal alloy (so recovering iron salts used in wastewater phosphorus removal).
FlashPhos presentation at ESPP’s PERM4 meeting, 2nd June 2021.
FlashPhos is based on different technologies of project partners will develop and unify to best standards. The process will be integrated into existing industrial infrastructure (cement plants).
12 M€ funding under Horizon 2020 announced June 2021 to construct and test a c. 2 tonnes/day dry matter input pilot plant
