Juho Uzkurt Kaljunen

PhD student

Juho has dedicated his working life to nutrient recovery. His background is in chemical engineering but most of his studies have been closely related to municipal wastewater treatment. The last four years, starting with his Master’s thesis, Juho has worked for NPHarvest.

The Master’s thesis was about developing membrane technology to recover ammonia from liquid flows. The project – and process – escalated. Now the process is under plans for commercialization in semi-large mobile pilot scale with both nitrogen and phosphorus recovery. Juho is in Sweden to pilot the NPHarvest process in Recolab, Helsingborg in parallel with competing technologies.

Besides his professional life, Juho is a board game enthusiast along with other geekery that usually comes with it.
