University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign researchers look to reduce phosphorus from corn byproducts

March 26, 2018 |

In Illinois, researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign are using adding calcium to different corn byproducts and tweaking the solution’s pH in an effort to precipitate organic and inorganic phosphorus compounds in minutes. Doing so would not only create potential additional value using the phosphorus as fertilizer or as supplements for animal feed but could also reduce the volumes that end up in wastewater treatment plants and eventually water bodies that feed into the Gulf of Mexico.
