The Most Cost Effective Phosphorus Treatment on the Market
PhosRedeem is a phosphorus adsorbent that captures dissolved phosphorus from a surface water source. An iron oxide based media that removes a Kg of P at a cost that is unmatched in the market. PhosRedeem is a patent pending particle design, privately funded in collaboration with the USDA. PhosRedeem can be recycled to save costs even further.
According to the EPA, over 60% of America’s coastal rivers and bays have been negatively impacted by phosphorous pollution. Wastewater treatment plants, agricultural fields, and urban developments are major sources of the excess nutrient deposits plaguing our waterways. Lake Okeechobee, Chesapeake Bay, and Lake Erie are prime examples of the toxic outbreaks of algae created by nutrient pollution, which leads to a process called eutrophication. Eutrophication depletes the oxygen levels in the water killing aquatic life that is vital to the ecosystems. Currently, the EPA states there are 166 coastal dead zones in the United States due to oxygen poor water.
It only takes one pound of phosphorus to grow 100 lbs of algae. Too much nutrient pollution such as phosphorus enters the waterways causing algae to grow faster than ecosystems can handle. This results in harming the water quality, food resources and habitats, and decreasing the oxygen necessary for the survival of fish and other aquatic life. Some algae blooms produce elevated toxins and bacteria that can cause humans to become sick if exposed to polluted water or consume tainted fish or shellfish. To prevent algae blooms from plaguing the world’s waterways, phosphorus must be removed as a key nutrient that supports the growth of algae. Our revolutionary product PhosRedeem is an adsorbent that dissolves phosphorus from an effluent water source. By adding PhosRedeem to the proper filtration systems, phosphorus can be captured more cost effectively than any other product on the market. PhosRedeem is a patent pending particle design, privately funded by US Iron in collaboration with the USDA. PhosRedeem can be recycled to save costs even further.
