WEF’s December open access article reviews biological phosphorus recovery

The Water Environment Federation’ (WEF) open access article in the December 2017 issue of Water Environment Research (WER) examines developments in biological phosphorus recovery and considers the potential for further advancement, titled Biological Phosphorus Recovery: Review of Current Progress and Future Needs and authored by Yu Yang, Xu Shi, Wendy Ballent, as well as Brooke K. Mayer.

“In their review paper, Yang et al. discuss the current paradigm with respect to enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) in light of phosphorus recovery strategies,” WER Editor-in-Chief, Tim Ellis, said. “Their review includes an overview of the phylogenic analysis of phosphate accumulating organisms and the key proteins involved in mixed-culture and mono-culture EBPR. The authors also propose a strategy to include P-recovery from algae and the associated opportunities and research needs.”
