  • 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 ...

  • U.S. EPA Seeks Public Input on Binational Phosphorus Reduction Targets to Combat Lake Erie Algal Blooms

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking public input on proposed phosphorus reduction targets to combat harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement requires the United States and Canada to adopt targets to reduce excess phosphorus levels for Lake Erie by early 2016. “The United States and Canada are committed to cutting phosphorus levels to protect ...

  • Development phosphate removal from RO brine

    During Reversed Osmosis (RO) in water purification not only pure water but also a high salt fraction (brine) is generated. In order to prepare this brine for discharge to a sewer system or WWTP Colsen develops a pellet reactor in close collaboration with PEKA Kroef (Odiliapeel, NL). Via co-crystallization of salts on an inorganic “germ” pellets are generated with a diameter of 2 to 8 ...

  • A better way for the US Government to clean our water

    When it comes to allocating money for conservation, reverse auctions can help governments get the biggest bang for their buck. Reverse auctions are auctions with many sellers but only one buyer. They are often used in the private-sector to procure services inexpensively, but reverse auctions can also be used to cost-effectively allocate public conservation dollars. In 2005, WRI, together with the ...
