According to research from Sweden, large sources of pollution to the Baltic Sea have been missed by existing monitoring effects. The Baltic Sea has had more and more health issues since the 1960s, due to the disposal of untreated human waste and toxic materials such as heavy metals. The countries that border the Baltic Sea have put together an action plan to stem the tide of contaminants entering the sea. Gia Destouni, a professor from Stockholm University, said these areas were being left...

Officials in Ohio are urging residents not to sweep their leaves into the street for collection because they can wash into streams and kill fish. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency said soluble nutrients such as phosphorus from dried leaves on streets and curb sides can wash into storm drains that discharge directly into nearby waterways and cause algae blooms that are fatal to fish. Property owners should consider raking leaves only to a grassy area along the road where runoff water...

Researchers have created a new material that overcomes two of the major obstacles to solar power: it absorbs all the energy contained in sunlight, and generates electrons in a way that makes them easier to capture. Ohio State University chemists and their colleagues combined electrically conductive plastic with metals including molybdenum and titanium to create the hybrid material. "There are other such hybrids out there, but the advantage of our material is that we can cover the entire range...

LOGAN (AP) -- State and Logan officials are trying to decide what, if anything, to do about high phosphorus levels in Cutler Reservoir. The Utah Division of Water Quality says phosphorus levels need to be cut in half because of risks to fish. Often associated with agricultural operations, phosphorus allows excess algae to grow, which steals oxygen that fish need. City officials, though, say two Utah State studies found fish populations there are doing well. They've suggested removing...

A wastewater treatment plant in metropolitan Portland will become the first facility in the United States to incorporate innovative new technology that removes phosphorus and other nutrients from wastewater and recycles them into environmentally safe commercial fertilizer. The new technology, expected to begin operating in early spring 2009, will bring increases in efficiency and effectiveness to the Durham Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility in Tigard, Ore., already recognized by the...

By Gu, April Z Saunders, A; Neethling, J B; Stensel, H D; Blackall, L L ABSTRACT: The abundance and relevance of Accumulibacter phosphatis (presumed to be polyphosphate-accumulating organisms [PAOs]), Competibacter phosphatis (presumed to be glycogen- accumulating organisms [GAOs]), and tetrad-forming organisms (TFOs) to phosphorus removal performance at six full-scale enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) wastewater treatment plants were investigated. Coexistence of various levels...

In chemistry, a phosphate is a polyatomic ion or radical consisting of one phosphorus atom and four oxygen. In the ionic form, it carries a -3 formal charge, and is denoted PO43-. In a biochemical setting, a free phosphate ion in solution is called inorganic phosphate, to distinguish it from phosphates bound in the form of ATP, or perhaps in DNA or RNA. Inorganic phosphate is generally denoted Pi. Inorganic phosphate can be formed by the reactions of ATP, or ADP, with the formation of the...
