Trouble achieving your phosphate licence/limits ?
Nuisance struvite deposits causing pipe blockages and maintenance costs ?
Excess usage of chemical elements like lime and alum leading to higher operations cost ?
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.
ACTI-Mag 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.
ACTI-Mag, a very high surface area magnesium hydroxide liquid, targets phosphate while improving pH and organics removal within the wastewater treatment plant.Download the Solution Spec Sheet
A much simpler method of removing phosphorus is to dose ACTI-Mag into the wastewater.
ACTI-Mag has demonstrated rapid capture of most phosphate as a solid within the sludge, reducing effluent nutrients with potential to form phosphate-based struvite scale. The highly porous ACTI-Mag particle structure causes phosphate and ammonia to crystallise within the particle. The high pH inter-particle boundary layer is used to rapidly capture these nutrients in the sludge which, when used as compost or fertiliser, improves root growth and bloom of flowering or fruiting plants.
