Carbonxt® HydRestor™ phosphorus recovery technology was developed to specifically target growing needs to maintain regulatory compliance and maintain balance in the natural environment. The technology is versatile enough to be used for municipal wastewater, stormwater, or food and beverage applications. A filter filled with HydRestor™ pellets has a high affinity for phosphorous compounds with the demonstrated capability to remove up to 95% of total phosphorous from reclaimed water to meet strict regulatory compliance requirements.
Carbonxt® world-class knowledge of pellet manufacturing and fundamental processes removal of phosphorous from water provided a unique platform unavailable to our competitors. This tailored solution provides a low pressure differential across the filter bed by using 4 mm pellets, which reduces the need for additional pumping capacity that may be required for granular media. In addition, the pellets have lower fines upon installation and correspondingly have lower backwashing requirements than alternative media. Spent HydRestor™ media
can be used as a slow-release soil amendment providing beneficial, environmentally-friendly reuse of nutrients captured.
