    Wageningen PhD theses

    This database contains bibliographic descriptions of all Wageningen University PhD theses from 1920 onwards. It is updated on a daily basis by WUR Library.

    Author abstracts and/or summaries are added to all descriptions. A link to the full text dissertation is added to the bibliographic description. In a few cases, no electronic version is available, mostly because of copyright issues.

    Hard copies of all theses are available for loan at WUR Library. To request them, click the link Request this publication in the full record presentation. This is a fee based service.

(Bio)electrochemical recovery of ammonia from urine [PhD thesis]
Rodríguez Arredondo, Mariana \ 2019
biobased economy - urine - ammonia - energy recovery

In this thesis, we evaluated the use of (bio)electrochemical systems for the recovery of total ammonia nitrogen (TAN) from urine. Our focus was on improving the understanding and performance of the system in terms of TAN recovery. This was needed to get the technology closer to application as, at the start of this research, the proof-of-principle had just been demonstrated, and the highest TAN recoveries were around 30%.

Electrochemical phosphorus removal and recovery [PhD thesis]
Lei, Yang \ 2019

In this thesis, we propose an innovative membrane-free electrochemical system, which can potentially achieve the removal and recovery of phosphorus from wastewaters in the form of recoverable calcium phosphate. Electrochemically induced calcium phosphate precipitation can be applied for a range of wastewater pHs, also for a more acidic pH. In real wastewaters (i.e., sewage), the dosing of an external calcium source is not necessary, as enough calcium ions are already present. Additionally, no dosing of chemicals is needed. This dissertation is a first systematic study on electrochemical phosphorus removal and recovery with main findings summarized below. The insights gained present a significant step toward the potential application of this new method.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
