Multiform Harvest Inc. is a private company based in Seattle, Washington, which has developed a patented technology that recovers excess phosphorus and nitrogen from wastewater and converts it into a premium, slow-release fertilizer. The technology allows wastewater treatment plants to meet nutrient discharge limits more cost-effectively than other technologies, and provides a sustainable, domestic supply of a diminishing world resource

Multiform™ facilitates a more sustainable resource cycle for phosphorus (an essential nutrient with no substitutes). Too much phosphorus run-off and wastewater discharge can cause irreversible ecological damage. Our P-recovery systems provide the best solution to phosphorus issues in wastewater at the lowest cost. Now every wastewater treatment plant can afford to meet the most stringent standards for phosphorus discharge.
Our company was founded by Dr. Keith Bowers, whose vision for a cleaner and more sustainable supply of essential nutrients led to his pioneering work on the application of fluidized bed reactor technology to P-Recovery.
Multiform has set the bar higher for wastewater management and created new opportunities for responsible nutrient management in agriculture. We cannot close the loop for nutrients in the food and wastewater industries, but we can certainly avoid adverse nutrient impacts on our equally important water resources.
Our systems recover phosphorus for reuse in the production of premium fertilizers while reducing biosolids production.
We design our systems flexibly to meet your needs. Multiform™ focuses on the highest phosphorus removal at the lowest cost. The system locations and feed streams are optimized for each application. Nutrient production is not undertaken as part of the removal process thus avoiding complex re-circulation with its inherent operational disadvantages.
- Lowest capital and operating cost
- Most effective and efficient nutrient removal
- Easiest operation
- Smallest footprint and reactors
- Most flexible design and operation
- Best form of struvite for Nutrient production
