This chapter will explore whether the differences in the process development for phosphorus recovery and recycling and its implementation in Europe and Japan are linked to the waste flows and the regulative framework. The main waste flows and their qualities are summarized for the two geographical areas. Then a comparative overview of the full-scale applications and their importance in relation to the potential is presented. The drivers for phosphorus recycling and the expected further development in Europe and Japan are described.
