Industrial and Municipal wastewater should be considered as an important source for the recovery of crucial nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous and also other micro nutrients like potassium. The recovery of nutrients from wastewater will replace the anthropogenic fertilizers used in agriculture which can reduce the soil fertility and can also have serious implications on human health and environment. Recovery of nutrients will eliminate the possibility of eutrophication in water bodies due to the excess discharge of nutrients. Recovery of nutrients will also reduce the operational and maintenance costs as nutrient recovery involves sludge reclamation which will otherwise result in scaling of equipment. The federal regulations of all countries should also consider stringent effluent discharge permissible limits for total phosphorous and total nitrogen in order to reduce the total maximum daily nutrient load in the effluent streams.
