Phoslock® is a CSIRO developed formulation of bentonite lanthanum.
- Locks up phosphorus safely and permanently
- Environmentally friendly – non-toxic to humans, animals, fish and aquatic plants
- Internationally certified for use in drinking water reservoirs
High concentrations of phosphorus in water bodies lead to quality, health and odour issues.
Phoslock permanently binds phosphate and forms a new inert mineral called rhabdophane which becomes part of the natural lake sediments.
By removing excess phosphate the water quality and amenity are significantly improved.
