  • Phosphorus pollution research in great lakes

    NOAA has awarded New York-based Stony Brook University USD285,895 as part of an anticipated three-year, nearly USD500,000 project to determine how different kinds of phosphorous, a nutrient required by all plants for growth, trigger toxic blooms of blue-green algae in the Great Lakes. The project will focus on the algal species Microcystis, which frequently causes massive and unsightly blooms in ...

  • Phosphorus shortage solved through sewage recovery

    Phosphate is a key component in food production and an important element in fertilisers. The expectation is that easily extractable reserves of phosphate will be exhausted within fifty to ninety years due to the growing demand. Grontmij is working on finding a solution and on the more effective use of phosphate. The recovery and reuse of phosphate from waste water plays an important role in this. ...

  • `Oranges` can clean up and recover phosphorus

    Phosphorus is a common industrial pollutant in water, as detailed in a European Commission report to Parliament in 2004. A new technique for removing phosphorus from industrial wastewater uses waste products from orange juice production and allows the phosphorus to be re-used. It may help industries comply with the Water Framework and Urban Wastewater Directives3, as well as relieving pressure on ...

  • 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) ...

  • Europe`s discharge of nitrogen and phosphorus calculated

    Agriculture discharges the most nitrogen into Europe's coastal seas. Discharges of phosphorus come from treatment works to a larger extent, although in some areas agriculture and forestry are responsible for large discharges. This is shown by a study carried out by scientists at SMHI. For the first time scientists have carried out a complete calculation of the amount of nitrogen and ...

  • Bion Announces New U.S. Patent for Phosphorus Removal

  • Phosphorus recovery: new approaches developed in Vancouver could save the world

    In a May 2011 workshop sponsored by the Department of Energy, phosphorus was considered alongside lithium, neodynium, and rare earth metals as a potentially strategically important element. Phosphorus, a key element in plant growth (and thus in agriculture), is nonrenewable, obtained for commercial fertilizers from phosphate rock that is mined in a comparatively limited number of sites around ...

  • 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 ...

  • Manure and sewage can provide crops with more phosphorus than chemical fertilisers

    Phosphorus in sewage and manure could be more available to crops than previously thought, suggests new research. The study found that some forms of sewage and manure treatment provided plants with more phosphorus than conventional inorganic fertilisers. Over the past 50 years, chemical fertilisers containing inorganic phosphorus have boosted crop yields and food production across the globe. ...

  • 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 ...
