Trial to Take the P Out
As European directives drive ever more stringent consents for phosphorus removal, utilities are seeking technologies that can remove phosphorus from wastewater to the new lower levels required. However, achieving this economically with conventional technology is a challenge and innovative new solutions are required.

The challenge is on for the built environment ... get your free tickets for Futurebuild 2019
The built environment industry can influence the resilience, sustainability and quality of homes, buildings and elements of infrastructure and cities. Global scientific evidence and strategies, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, are giving a clear message: it is now time to think the unthinkable to make change happen.

Cuadrilla Resources is due to start fracking for shale gas at its Preston New Road site in Lancashire today.
A combination of solar panels, solar battery storage and an air source heat pump have made Kingfisher's recently opened Peterborough Screwfix store the first in its estate to be net zero in energy use - generating as much power as it uses and passing surplus energy back to the grid.
VLC Energy has unveiled the UK's largest battery storage portfolio which will respond to surges in demand and boost renewables by providing grid resilience.
Shale gas is one of the least sustainable ways to produce electricity, claim The University of Manchester from their research findings, but onshore oil and gas industry’s trade body UKOOG disagree.
AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals and Gasunie New Energy are investigating the large scale conversion of sustainable electricity into green hydrogen via the electrolysis of water.
Sainsbury's have announced plans to install Formula 1 inspired aerofoil technology on fridges in the cold aisles across all of its store estate by the middle of 2018, aiming for energy reductions of up to 15%.
A Northern Irish plastic bottle maker's redrafting of its motor-drives has led to to 60 percent fall in energy costs and 30 percent higher output.
The Carbon Trust will be running a new £9.2 million Government funded Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA). It aims to lower costs and increase the number of available energy efficient technologies for a range of industrial sectors, through demonstration of near to market innovations.
A trial in a village near the Yorkshire town of Barnsley will link 40 home batteries and be the first to study how clusters of batteries linked to solar panels can reduce peak solar output onto the network. This will allow more solar homes to be connected to existing infrastructure, reducing their pressure on the national grid.
