Abstract

This research investigates the feasibility of recovering the nutrients and the water from hydroponic wastewater, effectively turning a waste product into a valuable resource. An integrated process involving nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) was used to retain the valuable nutrients and water and filter out the undesired salt (NaCl) present in the wastewater.
