Australian environmental company Phoslock Environmental Technologies has signed a commercial-in-confidence agreement to manufacture, sell and distribute a re-usable phosphorus absorption product developed by an international university.

The new product can be used to capture and remove phosphorus from running waters in wetlands, filter systems, rivers and canals, with a high capacity and selectivity making it suitable for treating in-place applications. The process uses permeable, re-usable bags with nanoparticles which ensure rapid uptake of phosphorus as water flows through.

The captured phosphorus is not subject to leaching or loss even under extreme environmental conditions, and can be removed and on-sold as a slow-release fertiliser. The product has already proven effective in stormwater and agricultural drainage applications with capture rates of up to 80 percent of phosphorus loads. | READ MORE
