Phosphate Recovery from Livestock Wastewater Using Iron Oxide Nanotubes (INTs)

Water issue adressed: Too dirty

Hoengseong County of South Korea, where Korean Minjok Leadership Academy is located, is the hub of Korean livestock industries. While Hoengseong is famous for milk production, it is suffering from eutrophication – severe algae bloom – due to influx of livestock wastewater into the water environment. This project aims to prevent eutrophication by developing Iron oxide nanotubes to not only remove phosphate (the main factor of eutrophication) but also to retrieve it for further industrial use.
