The current Asset Management Programme cycle (AMP 7) during which the municipal utilities across England have to address a number of set targets within the 2020-2025 period poses some serious challenges to the water companies. The requirements for AMP 7 are one of the largest-ever quality programmes and represent one of the biggest challenges the water industry has faced in its history. One of the targets set in this AMP cycle is a strict phosphorus consent limit that a number of water/wastewater treatment sites across England have to adhere to. Current treatment systems rely predominantly on chemical dosing using coagulants such as Ferric sulphate/chloride or Aluminium sulphate. However, the demand for such chemicals heavily outweighs the supply and there is need for new treatment options to support this new AMP cycle.
