Technically and economically feasible solutions for treatment of wastewater and recovery of nutrients are being developed in the TYPKI project.

VTT's Resource-wise Nutrient Recovery from industrial wastewaters (TYPKI) project promotes the recovery and refinement of substances such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and sulphur from mine
