Deteriorating water quality is a major global problem, driven by climate change, population growth and increasing levels of pollution.
- Excess nutrient levels result in eutrophication
- Harmful toxins are a threat to marine habitats, animals and humans
- Generates high levels of carbon dioxide
- Significant economic costs
Phoslock Environmental Technologies (PET) is a global leader in the treatment and remediation of water, particularly where impacted by excessive levels of phosphorus.
High phosphorus levels often result in eutrophication and are one of the major contributors to water pollution around the world, driven by increased urbanisation, agricultural run-off and global warming.
Our flagship product, Phoslock®, was originally developed by the Australian national science agency (CSIRO). This proprietary technology binds phosphorus and enables it to settle in an environmentally benign state. It has been extensively assessed by independent experts as having distinct advantages over competitive treatments.
The Phoslock technology is now being expanded into international markets, with additional technical and sales resources and a focused marketing strategy. A revised R&D program is generating product extensions that allow further diversification into new market segments.
We take a multifaceted solutions approach to water remediation, using products and engineering techniques to achieve healthy waterways for the communities that rely on them.
PET was established in 2002 and is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:PET).
