Trouble achieving your phosphorous limits ?

Nuisance struvite deposits causing pipe blockages and maintenance costs ?

Excess usage of chemical elements like lime and alum leading to higher operations cost ?

WHY IS PHOSPHATE AN ISSUE?

Phosphorus – usually in the form of phosphates – comes from sources such as human and animal waste, detergents and food residue. It has to be treated and reduced from the wastewater in order to meet environmental standards before it is discharged into a local water body, or land irrigation.

There are two methods of removing phosphorus from wastewater: biological removal and chemical removal. Establishing and maintaining biological conditions for effective and continuous biological phosphorus removal can be quite challenging.

AMALGAM boosts this biological phosphate removal while at the same time capturing the excess phosphate within the sludge, which is beneficial for composting of solid waste.

AMALGAM for phosphate removal

AMALGAM is a formulation of magnesium hydroxide liquid that targets phosphate while improving pH and organics removal within the wastewater treatment plant.

Key Benefits

A much simpler method of removing phosphorus is to dose AMALGAM into the wastewater.

Significant reduction in phosphate levels at discharge.
Improvement in effluent BOD and COD.
Stabilised pH throughout the waste water treatment system.
Elimination of FOG build up in the anaerobic ponds.

SUPPORTING WATERAID

Because we truly care about sanitation

Almost 2 billion people do not have a decent toilet or access to basic and safely managed sanitation. In many cases, faeces and urine end up untreated in the environment, contaminating it and threatening people’s health.

This is why IER supports WaterAid programs, to facilitate access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in the world’s poorest and most marginalised communities.
