Phosphorus ores will be exhausted in about 80 years . The development of phosphorus-recycling systems would help to counteract phosphorus depletion. Foamed glass materials have a porous structure that incorporates a large number of voids and are conventionally used as civil engineering materials or aggregates for construction . Since calcium carbonate is used as the foaming agent, and it can be used as an adsorbent for phosphorus. In this study, we investigated phosphorus removal from environmental water using foamed glass.
