  • How can we use phosphorus more efficiently and create opportunities for recycling?

    The Commission is launching a consultation on how to use phosphorus in a more sustainable way. Phosphorus is widely used in agriculture and is an essential component in fertiliser and animal feed, but it is a resource which has no substitute. Supplies are limited, prices have been volatile and much phosphorus is currently wasted, creating concerns about the cost and availability of future ...

  • 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 ...

  • How much phosphorus pollution makes lakes unsafe for recreation?

    A target level of 20 micrograms of phosphorus per litre of lake water could help keep many lakes safe for recreation by restricting the growth of harmful algal blooms, European research suggests. The scientists analysed the relationship between phosphorus levels in medium- and high-alkalinity lakes, the growth of cyanobacteria blooms and the concentrations of cyanobacteria that trigger World ...

  • Water quality improves after fertilizer ban - study

    In an effort to keep lakes and streams clean, municipalities around the country are banning or restricting the use of phosphorus-containing lawn fertilizers, which can kill fish and cause smelly algae blooms and other problems when the phosphorus washes out of the soil and into waterways. But do the ordinances really help reduce phosphorus pollution? That’s been an open question until now, says ...

  • Benefits of constructed wetland ecosystem services worth more than double the costs

    The economic benefits of the ecosystem services provided by constructed wetlands far outweigh the costs of maintaining them, new research has confirmed. Analysis of a wetland that treats the third largest lake in Florida, US, shows that it provides ecosystem services worth $1.79 (€1.64) million per year, against costs of less than half that figure. Eutrophication, an excess of nutrients ...

  • Cutting nutrient pollution may curb harmful algal blooms

    Reducing nitrogen and phosphorus pollution may be an easier, more effective way to control harmful algal blooms in water than addressing warming temperatures, say researchers. Cyanobacteria, also known ...

  • Oxygenization of sea floor tested in coastal waters of the western Finland

    A joint Nordic three-year research project will show whether pumping of oxygen-rich surface water down to the bottom-near water layer can improve the state of coastal water that suffer from oxygen depletion. In anoxic conditions, nutrients stored in the bottom sediment, particularly phosphorus, are released into water. The Finnish research site is the Sandöfjärden water area in the western part ...

  • Understanding Chesapeake Bay nutrient trends

    Reducing the delivery of nutrients to the Chesapeake Bay (USA) is one of the most important components of restoration efforts to achieve a healthy Bay ecosystem. The USGS has developed a new method for tracking the progress toward reducing nitrogen and phosphorus delivery from the watershed to the Bay. According to Robert Hirsch, USGS Research Hydrologist who led the development of this ...

  • Four of nine ‘planetary boundaries’ exceeded

    Civilisation has crossed four of nine ‘planetary boundaries’, increasing the risk of irreversibly driving the Earth in to a less hospitable state, concludes new research. These are: extinction rate, deforestation, atmospheric CO2 and the flow of nitrogen and phosphorus. Planetary boundaries are scientifically based levels of human pressure on critical global processes that could ...

  • Everglades restoration continues despite water scarcity

    South Florida experienced a severe water shortage during Water Year 2007, more than a foot below historic averages for the region. From May 1, 2006 to April 31, 2007, low rainfall reduced flows across the entire region, according the annual report released Tuesday by Florida state agencies. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and South Florida Water Management District report ...

  • What future for our food system? Let us know what you think

    In Europe we waste about 89 million tons of food every year. Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik said: "This is morally and economically unacceptable and is all the more horrific when you consider the true scale of the resources required to produce those 89 million tons! We are also wasting all those resources. There's something wrong with the system." Food is essential to life. It forms ...

  • Phosphate monitor protects Cumbrian lake during restoration
