The chemical is highly reactive with other soluble metal elements in the water. Uses include:

    • Coagulation. In the process the iron anions attach to the negative element ions in water to form a precipitate or suspended solid.


    • These solids can then be removed from the water during filtration. This is a common method of purifying drinking water to a high as 85% purity.


    • Wastewater treatment plants to precipitate phosphorus. Phosphorus is one of the major elements found in raw sewage that leads to eutrophication of large water bodies.


  • Eutrophication is the process of enriching the water bodies with nutrients from outside the ecosystem. It often leads to the imbalance of the ecosystem as algae and other aquatic plants invade the water body in large numbers due to the presence of enough nutrients.
