Uisce Éireann, Ireland’s water utility, has completed the country’s first phosphorous recovery facility at the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant. This groundbreaking technology aligns with the principles of the circular economy and addresses the issue of excess phosphorous in wastewater. By recovering phosphorous, a valuable resource used in agriculture, the facility promotes a more sustainable approach to wastewater treatment. The development is a significant step in safeguarding the waters of the Lower Liffey Estuary and Dublin Bay from the harmful effects of phosphorous, such as algal blooms. The innovative process allows

for the recovery of 1.3 tonnes of phosphorous per day, reducing its discharge into the bay. With an annual capacity of over 4,000 tonnes, the phosphorous recovery facility supports compliance with environmental regulations and contributes to Dublin’s population growth. Jean Hobbs, Senior Programme Manager for Uisce Éireann said, “Phosphorus, which had been discharged into the bay is now being recovered for use as a safe product which can be spread on land to help grow crops, thus removing an excess nutrient from the waste stream, and turning it into a valuable resource instead.”
