New Technology Makes Fertilizer from Water Pollution



(NAFB)--A new technology is planned for a water reclamation plant in Cicero, Illinois that would remove nutrient pollution from wastewater and convert it to pellets to be sold as fertilizer for crops and lawns. The technology was developed by Canadian-based Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technology, Inc. Robert Kennedy Jr. - a member of Ostara’s Board of Directors - says this advanced nutrient recovery technology not only reduces nutrient load but helps protect waterways. According to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago - the technology should produce approximately 10-thousand to 15-thousand tons of fertilizer annually.
