Presence of nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus in wastewater effluents and their impacts on natural water bodies are of major concern. With the recent evidence that anthropogenic phosphorus (not nitrogen) addition in micrograms per liter level can trigger algal growth, phosphorus removal to lowest level has become increasingly important.
CONCLUSIONS: THIOGUARD IMPROVES BIO-P
With 50% improvements in alkalinity and 64% improvements in Phosphorus uptake, the total sustained health of the biomass is improved and ultimately over time continued to maintain stable removal of phosphorus. Read More
