Thus, there is interest in recovering nutrients from wastewater and using them as fertilizers. During the past 20 years, a number of fertilizer products derived from wastewater have been developed, and used as primary sources of N (nitrogen), P (phosphorus) and K (potassium). They differ in their origin and physical form, and include urine (concentrated, or unconcentrated, or biochemically treated), ammonium sulphate, struvite, digester liquid, untreated sludge blackwater, thickened sludge (dry matter in excess of 20%), and compost.

Spatial distribution map for general oncological pathology: (a) age range 30–59, (b) older than 60 years. Peculiarities of regularities of connection of health – nitrate pollution is weaker dependency for age group over 60 years. Explanation of this effect is hard to have and needs further analysis. Analysing the location of anomalies and comparing them to the character of population death rate due to cardio-vascular diseases (Figure 7), we can see that weak correlation is traced for only N I – III for age group 30–59 years and for N I, III, age group over 60.
