Due to their fertilizing effect, phosphate compounds from municipal sewage promote the growth of algae in water bodies and therefore have a eutrophic effect. The waste water from properties that are not connected to a public waste water treatment plant must be cleaned in a mechanical, fully biological small sewage treatment plant before it can be discharged into a body of water or seeped away.
By using FerroSorp® AW, the phosphorus present in the effluent of small sewage treatment plants can be completely removed and water pollution can be ruled out.
In addition, there is the possibility of recycling the phosphate and making it available for agriculture. The use of FerroSorp® AW represents a way of sustainably conserving resources and the environment.
