Phosphate compounds in municipal waste water promote due to their fertilizing effect the growth of algae in water bodies and therefore lead to eutrophication.
Waste water from properties that are not connected to public waste water treatment facilities have to be cleaned in a mechanical full biological small waste water treatment plant before they are allowed to be discharged into water bodies or to be drained.

Our product FerroSorp® AW can be used as an efficient, inexpensive solution for further phosphorus elimination in waste water treatment and can easily be retrofitted. The use of FerroSorp® AW not only minimizes the entry of phosphorus into water bodies but also provides the possibility to recycle the phosphorus for agriculture purposes and thus close the natural phosphorus cycle.
