(Nitrogen Extraction from Water By an Innovative Electrochemical System)
NEWBIES comprises the development, scale-up and piloting of an innovative electrochemical system for ammonia recovery. This technology was developed in the Resource Recovery theme of Wetsus as part of the FP7 project ValuefromUrine. The NEWBIES system will be tested on three types of wastewater: source separated urine, digester effluent and landfill leachate. The project is funded under EU’s LIFE programme for environment and climate action. The project partners are Wetsus (coordinator, NL), W&F Technologies BV (NL), Evides Industriewater BV (NL), and ICRA (ES).
