Would a poop plant by any other name smell so sweet?

In our industry we're shifting how we look at wastewater treatment.  In fact to even say "wastewater treatment" may soon be a thing of the past.  The shift is to stop looking at "used water" as a waste product to dispose safely, and start to look at it as an opportunity to recover valuable resources.  Our used waters contain... water (yup, tricky one that), nutrients (particularly phosphorus), heat and organics.  Let's see what we can do to recover these resources.

So maybe me using "poop engineer" for my blog title wasn't such a smart idea?  But, hey, that's what I am and whatever you call it, it's a sweet topic to consider how we can take something with a negative image and turn it around to a positive!
