Lake eutrophication is one of the most common water quality problems worldwide.
The restrictions on use associated with eutrophication, e.g. with regard to drinking water production, fish farming, bathing or recreational value, often lead to efforts to improve the trophic situation.
A very effective way of doing this is to attach phosphorus to the surface of iron hydroxide. In order to meet the different requirements regarding the treatment technology, a range of products was developed under the name FerroSorp® GW, with which both in-situ and ex-situ measures for phosphate elimination can be implemented.
