This paper aims in exploring the potential of the intended purposes in the newly developed dewatered aluminum-water treatment sludge (Al-WTS) based engineered wetland (EW) for wastewater treatment. Due to the low energy requirement and aesthetical appearance EW is seen as a ‘green’ wastewater treatment technique worldwide for a wide variety of wastewater treatment. The Al-WTS based EW developed at University College Dublin, Ireland, represents the latest initiative at using engineering ingenuity to further improve EWs performance. This paper summarizes the background of development and the results derived from different phases of the development of Al-WTS based EW.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||Springer Science+Business Media B.V.||Keywords:||Alum sludge (Al-WTS);Adsorption;Engineered wetland;Reuse;Wastewater treatment||Subject LCSH:||Water treatment plant residuals
