Optimising the performance of particulate adsorbents for electrochemical water treatment

Arvia Technology's patented, multi-award winning, sustainable technology uses a process of adsorption and electrochemical regeneration to destroy aqueous, organic contaminants. Currently delivering a solution to untreatable radioactive organics in the nuclear industry, the next target market is water purification. The aims of the project are to understand the material properties of the unique adsorbent, the adsorbent behaviour and to optimise it for water treatment; improving the general efficiency of the process, opening the door to the highly valuable water purification market, and underpinning the eco-innovative service that will deliver numerous environmental benefits.
