Dr. Rikard Ylmén's research focuses on recovery of phosphate from waste water. Liquid-liquid extraction is the main method used in the project to separate the phosphate from the water. Recovery of phosphate is important as it is a main component of fertilizers and the mineral deposits in the world are limited. Phospate should also not be emitted to natural waters as it contributes to eutrophication.
