EasyMining is focused on creating circular material flows from waste. Phosphorus is an essential element for life as a key nutrient for agriculture. Via the food cycle, phosphorus ends up in sewage sludge. This sludge can be spread on agricultural land, used for soil production, or be incinerated. Incineration is today mainly used as a method to reduce the amount of waste to land fill, or destruction if the sludge quality is too low for other uses.
The phosphorus content of ash from incinerated sewage sludge is high, and through this unique patented process, we are able to extract clean commercial phosphorus products from the ash. In addition to the phosphorus, the Ash2Phos process can recover precipitation chemicals and remove heavy metals.
