Phoslock Water Solutions completes largest U.S. application of water treatment technology


Phoslock Water Solutions’ (ASX: PHK) U.S. licensee SePRO Corporation and Californian distributor Aquatechnex have completed the largest application of the Phoslock water treatment technology ever undertaken in the U.S.

The application took place on a 13 hectare lake in Orange County, southern California and involved the application of more than 50 tonnes of Phoslock over four days.

Phoslock has the worldwide rights for the sale and marketing of the technology that was developed by the Australian government scientific body CSIRO and removes phosphorus and harmful contaminants in water.

It is primarily used as an in water solution for lakes, drinking water reservoirs and other high value recreational water bodies.

The southern Californian lake, which is a storm catchment basin for an adjacent creek, has suffered from poor water quality for many years due to excessive phosphorus levels.

These levels cause excessive growth of algae and have created an imbalance in the ecology of the lake.

The treatment, which is the third major application of Phoslock in the U.S. in the past three months, took place in the same week as an application to treat an urban lake in the Greater Toronto Area of Canada.

Water quality will be closely monitored in the coming months and the results of the application used to generate further interest in the use of Phoslock in California and other regions of the U.S.

Record activity

The March quarter of 2013 was the most active in Phoslock’s history, with five major projects – valued between A$80,000 and $450,000 – completed during the quarter in Europe and the U.S.

The company completed three lake projects in the United Kingdom and U.S. licensee, SePRO Corporation, recently completed two of the largest Phoslock projects undertaken in the U.S.

Growing interest

Two further applications of Phoslock in Canada, both of which would be significantly larger than last week’s project, are planned for the next 12 months.

Phoslock also continues to work on negotiations on several promising projects in Asia. The potential size of these projects is material in both volume of product and monetary value.
