Table 3 Approximated P and N recovery rates for different substrates

From: Valorization of organic waste fractions: a theoretical study on biomethane production potential and the recovery of N and P in Austria

Substrate P recovery rate N recovery rate
Manure 90% 70%
Sewage sludge 90% 70%
Straw 83% 77%
Bush-, grass- and tree-cuts 83% 71%
Biowaste from households 71% 70%
Waste from food production 71% 70%
Other biogenic wastes 71% 70%
