Abstract The recovery of phosphorus from waste is very important for Japan because Japan has no natural phosphorus resources. In order to recover phosphorus from incineration ash of chicken manure, an acid dissolution-alkali precipitation method was investigated. Phosphorus content in the ash was 8\%. The ash was treated with hydrochloric acid to obtain phosphorus-rich solution. Phosphorus could then be recovered as a precipitant by adding sodium hydroxide solution into the phosphorus-rich solution and gradually changing the pH in the solution to 3, 4, and 8. At pH3, a small amount of phosphorus was precipitated to remove iron, which would cause coloring of subsequent precipitants. At pH4, 84\% of the phosphorus in the original solution could be recovered as CaHPO4 x 2H2O with a purity of 92\%. At pH8, 8\% of the phosphorus in the phosphorus-rich solution could be recovered as identified hydroxyapatite. A recovery rate of 92\% phosphorus as CaHPO4 x 2H2O and identified as hydroxyapatite was achieved.
