Phoslock Water Solutions Limited (ASX:PHK) will complete the treatment of Lake Goldap in Poland with 300 tonnes of Phoslock this week.
Phoslock is a unique water treatment product that permanently binds excess phosphorus in the water column and sediments.
This, in turn, inhibits the growth of harmful algae that lead to detrimental effects on both aquatic and human life.
Largest application of Phoslock in Europe to date
The $1.3 million project in Poland commenced in December 2017 and is being funded jointly by the European Union and the Goldap City Council.
Three-quarters of the 130 hectares lake is in Poland and one-quarter in the Russian Federation, making the project the first application of Phoslock to a lake with an international border.
Importantly, the project is the largest application of Phoslock in Europe to date and has drawn considerable interest from both the media and other municipalities in the Mazurian lake district of Poland.
Phoslock managing director Robert Schuitema said: “This ongoing application is further evidence of the growing strength of the Phoslock brand in Europe and the UK.
“We have now conducted over 70 applications in 10 countries in Europe, with a number of further projects in various stages across the European Union”.
