Clean TeQ Water’s phosphate removal technology consistently reaches phosphate concentrations below 0.1 ppm and recovers a solid, reusable phosphorus product.
Phosphate (also known as orthophosphate) water pollution is a major problem throughout the world. Elevated phosphate levels in wastewater can lead to:
- Eutrophication of natural water bodies which causes algal blooms that severely harm water quality and the aquatic environment
- Production of marine mucilage (sea snot) causing ecological damage
For these reasons, Governments and water authorities around the world are placing increasingly strict regulations on phosphate concentrations for discharge/disposal to the environment.
Traditional phosphate removal plants rely on chemicals such as ferric chloride to be added to precipitate the phosphorus, with high chemical use and operational costs.
Phosphate Removal Technologies
Our PHOSPHIX® technology can consistently and efficiently reach phosphate concentrations below 0.1 ppm using a system based on ion exchange and chemical precipitation. A solid phosphorus product with low solubility is formed in the smaller side stream which can be used for fertiliser production. This allows PHOSPHIX to recycle the phosphorus extracted during treatment instead of tying it up in sludge, meeting the phosphorus recycling regulations which exist in some regions of the world.
