This chapter identifies the possible phosphorus flows that might be intercepted in recovery and reuse efforts. It examines current practices of phosphorus intercepting from landfills, waterways, and non-arable lands. It explores possibilities of retrofitting or reinventing physical infrastructure to enhance interception and recovery of phosphorus from waste streams of humans and livestock. It also considers the allied benefits and trade-offs obtained with phosphorus recovery and reuse projects.
