Project Details

Reuse of nutrients from artificial fertilizer, with focus on phosphorus

Water problem addressed: Too little

Summary: My project started from a fear of the future and the phosphorus-crisis that our planet is facing. In order to solve this problem, I wanted to determine if it is possible to reuse run-off water, and thus reuse the minerals it contains as fertilizers for plants. The result of my research showed that the plants who was given run-off water, with higher concentration of nutrients, got a greater growth. The conclusion drawn from the results is that run-off water can be reused and used as fertilizers for plants, and therefore hopefully solve the future phosphorus- crisis that is threatning our world.
