Water is our life
Clean water is the life blood of our environment and it is being rendered unfit for human consumption and recreation every day. Nutrient pollution is devastating lakes, rivers, estuaries and large coastal areas. The entire country, from the Great Lakes to coastal Florida, has been impacted by nutrient pollution with seasonal toxic algae blooms measured in square miles. Phosphorus Free Water Solutions is passionate about the reversal of this process and has created a novel, environmentally friendly process to remove harmful nutrients from contaminated waters, wherever they are found, to prevent future algae growth, reduce fish kills and improve overall water quality.
Using proprietary technologies created using extensive research, we are able to remove up to 99% of the phosphorus and up to 95% of the nitrogen during the treatment process. These nutrients fuel the growth of toxic algae, red tide and encourage excess vegetation in our waterways.
Why it matters
Nutrient contamination, such as excess phosphorus, promotes algae growth and red tide, which can lead to contaminated drinking water and cost the economy millions, maybe billions, of dollars. Even worse, it can harm the environment.
Unfortunately, traditional phosphorus removal processes typically focus on the removal of sediments or lower water column phosphorus and leave the phosphorus in the ecosystem. Stormwater Treatment Areas, while effective are more costly and leave the nutrients on the bottom in the form of nutrient-rich sediments that must periodically be removed.
By completely removing contaminants like phosphorus, algae cannot grow. That is why our innovative and environmentally friendly CleanWater process focuses solely on completely removing all soluble phosphorus from the ecosystem, permanently.
How it works
Proprietary System Precipitates Phosphorus
Advanced Filtration Removes Phosphorus
Phosphorus exists in several forms, all of which must be removed to meet mandated levels.
Proprietary precipitation converts phosphorus to particulate forms that can be removed. Nitrogen is removed through an advanced biological system compatible with our phosphorus removal systems.
The process employs a dynamic filtration setup that allows for near ultrafiltration capability.
