  • Phosphate monitor protects Cumbrian lake during restoration

    Novel phosphate monitoring technology from OTT Hydrometry is helping the South Cumbria Rivers Trust (SCRT) to improve water quality during a project to restore a lake in the north of England. Funded by United Utilities, the Elterwater Remediation Project has been created to improve water quality by increasing water flow through the lake and dramatically lowering residency time. Background ...

  • Geo-engineering to clean up decades of phosphorus pollution in lakes

    Phosphorus is the biggest cause of water quality degradation worldwide, causing ‘dead zones’, toxic algal blooms, a loss of biodiversity and increased health risks for the plants, animals and humans. This threatens the loss of economic and social benefits from freshwaters. Miquel Lurling of the Aquatic Ecology group was lead author of a special issue of Water Research on the control ...

  • Potential for more efficient energy, land and phosphorus use by 2050

    There is a large potential to improve the global efficiency of energy, land and phosphorus use, finds new research which modelled the effects of four worldwide scenarios between 2010 and 2050. An ‘ambitious resource strategy’ could moderate the increases in energy use (+25% globally instead of +80% in the baseline scenario), phosphorus use (+9% instead of +40%) and arable land (-9% ...

  • Two key factors control phosphorus movement from soil to groundwater

    New insights into how phosphorus leaches into groundwater could help reduce its potential impact on water and the environment, a UF/IFAS scientist says. Phosphorus poses an environmental threat when it travels from soils to open water bodies, including lakes, streams and rivers. When too much phosphorus is applied to soils, the ground cannot hold all of the chemical, said Gurpal Toor, an ...

This study presents a series of phosphorus security indicators to support this goal. Phosphorus is ...

  • Recovering and recycling phosphorus from incinerated waste

    Phosphorus can be extracted in viable quantities from fly ash, a by-product created when municipal solid waste is burnt in incinerators, according to research conducted in Sweden. Sufficient phosphorus could be recovered from the country’s incinerators to meet 30% of the Swedish annual demand for mineral fertilisers, say the researchers. A substantial amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) ...

  • Risks of biodiversity loss posed by nitrogen and phosphorus pollution in European freshwaters

    The risk of eutrophication as a result of nitrogen and phosphorus pollution in Europe’s freshwaters fell by 22% in lakes and by 38% in rivers between 1985 and 2011, new research has shown. The researchers analysed data across 88 European river basins using a new statistical approach which could be used to help identify factors which increase eutrophication risks. Nitrogen and phosphorus can ...
