The goal of this research is to identify barriers that hinder the development of phosphorus (P)<br/>recycling by the communal water chain. Insights into these barriers can lead to a better<br/>understanding of the situation and can lead to possible solutions to overcome the obstacles. The research shows that P recycling is a complex field with...
