Nutrient absorption of neutralised acid effluent and blends
Total Grant Value
The project and report addressed issues that needed to be resolved in order for neutralised acid effluent to be used, including:
- which mixtures of materials will provide the greatest sorption capacity for P and N;
- whether certain environmental perturbations would induce catastrophic release of sorbed nutrients; and
- nutrient availability in materials to determine their value as slow-release fertilizers.
