Join Isle at IFAT - Run4Life Project and The virtuous circle of integrated nutrient recovery

Domestic wastewater is an important carrier of resources, especially water and nutrients – which are hardly recovered in the current centralised wastewater management systems.
Run4Life demonstrates an alternative strategy for improving nutrient recovery, based on a decentralised treatment of segregated toilet wastewater, other domestic wastewaters and organic kitchen waste. Innovative technologies are combined to achieve this goal. At 4 sites in Europe, for the first time nutrients will be recovered from domestic waste streams of several 100 dwellings. In collaboration with fertilizer producers, the resulting products will be characterised and the possibilities for their agricultural application will be determined. End users and other stakeholders are a fundamental part of this evaluation to achieve institutional, legal and social acceptance.
Isle is leading in the development of strategies to facilitate rapid market access of the solutions demonstrated during the project.
