[en] Many wastes containing reusable components, such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, are not exploited through ideal processes. As an example, in Wallonia (Belgium), the main treatment applied to sewage sludge consists in incinerating the material. Such a process is chosen when the heavy metals are too concentrated in the sludge, preventing an agricultural use. However, sewage sludge, as well as manure, slurry and digestate, contain notable amounts of nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium). Some Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTPs) are actually designed in order to promote Phosphate Accumulating Organisms (PAOs), able to store or release phosphorus in accordance with the environmental conditions. The aim of this work is to isolate PAOs from WWTPs and evaluate their applicability to phosphorus recovery from organic wastes. Metagenomics and metabolic properties are also considered. This work is supported by the BioRefine Project, a European project in which various member states focus on recovery of inorganics from organic wastestreams.
