DIMONDALE, Mich. — Michigan State University associate professor Steven Safferman is developing the technology.

DIMONDALE, Mich. — A researcher from Michigan State University is testing a system that will remove phosphorus from wastewater discharge, according to an article from Ventura County Star.

Steven Safferman, an associate professor at Michigan State, is developing a nano-filter system that will capture phosphorus from wastewater for re-use in fertilizer, the article reported.

"It's so great to see something come to fruition that can really help the environment, as well as provide a renewable resource that was not renewable in the past," said Safferman.

Safferman is working with a private company, the article continued, and expects to release the technology commercially within the next two years.
