Global Phosphate Solutions has developed a new phosphorus removal/recovery
compound that is safe, economical, and can be deployed on a large scale to control
the levels of the chemical in running freshwater (both warm and cold weather
environments), as well as that undergoing treatment in a plant. The compound can
be used in water treatment facilities and in lakes and flowing water. The spongelike
reusable resin bead reduces phosphorus levels to 10 parts per billion. It will remove phosphorus faster and more efficiently than present methods, and is a ready
to be deployed to prevent next year’s algae bloom.
The solution can be economically produced in large volumes, while recovering the excess phosphorus to be reused in other markets. Mike Irish, Steve Hammon, and Jared Hammon comprise the Global Phosphate Solutions team.
