Nutrient Management Solutions

PEARL processInstead of viewing wastewater streams as waste, Ostara sees a renewable resource that can generate costs savings and revenues for the treatment plant while helping them meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations. Benefits include:

  • Prevention of struvite formation and its associated operation, maintenance and capital costs
  • Reduced sludge volumes and associated disposal costs
  • Meeting effluent discharge and biosolids land application limits
  • Improved overall system reliability through reduced nutrient loadings and discharge
  • Revenues from the Crystal Green® fertilizer produced by the Ostara process
  • Crystal Green production is considerably less carbon-intensive than traditional fertilizer manufacturing processes and safely returns nutrients to where they have most benefit ¬– growing plants ¬– establishing a virtuous cycle of removal-release-recover.
