On 1 June 2021 NuReDrain organises its final conference webinar. This webinar is the ideal opportunity for stakeholders and other interested parties to discover all the project field tests results, the modelling work on the nutrient reduction potential for end-of-pipe solutions and our latest insights on the potential phosphorus recovery and reuse.
