Smart Water Magazine hosted in collaboration with Phoslock Environmental Technologies a live webinar last Thursday, May 25th about nutrient pollution, and in particular, phosphorus pollution. During the 45-minute online event, two water remediation experts from Phoslock: Damian Whelan, General Manager at Phoslock Environmental Technologies and Dr Kate Waters-Hart, Group Manager, Aquatic Science at Phoslock Environmental Technologies, spoke to over 300 attendees from around the world about one of the most challenging environmental issues worldwide.
During his presentation, Whelan introduced Phoslock Environmental Technologies (PET), an Australian company that offers water treatment and remediation solutions to address excess nutrients in water bodies. The firm’s flagship product, Phoslock®, was originally developed by the Australian national science agency (CSIRO) more than 20 years ago.
Whelan also highlighted during the presentation that Phoslock® has been extensively assessed by independent experts. He said: “More than 150 peer-reviewed scientific papers have reported on the efficiency and environmental impact profile of Phoslock treatment.” Furthermore, the solution has been successfully applied in over 320 projects around the world. Currently, the firm is active in Canada, the United States, Australia, where its headquarters are located, New Zealand and several European countries, including the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium.
