EU Worries over Detergent Phosphates

May 13, 2009: 04:01 AM EST
The EU is gearing up to restrict phosphates in detergents in 2009, following a study in Spain that the chemicals are causing worse eutrophication (excessive and unwanted organism growth in fresh water) than previously thought. Norway wants to lower the maximum permissible phosphorus content of household dish washing detergents from 3.8 to 0.2 per cent. Other EU countries have already adopted or are planning further phosphate restrictions.
