Spark it up: Municipal water can be rid of harmful substances using only electricity 16.4.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Harmful organic substances, such as pharmaceutical residues, can be efficiently removed from wastewater using only electricity, say scientists who tested a process called pulsed corona discharge (PCD). Pilot tests by researchers from Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in Finland showed that pharmaceutical residues, their variants and other similar compounds degrade easily from wastewater because the process is non-selective. "It does not require the vast settling tanks needed by the traditional approach to water purification so a membrane bioreactor plant can be built cost effectively in a smaller area", explains Kimmo Arola, a researcher at LUT's department of Chemical Engineering. PCD is based on the instantaneous contact produced by an electric discharge between a plasma zone and water. In this phenomenon, water molecules and oxygen in the atmosphere create strong oxidants which degrade organic compounds into water and carbon dioxide. The study examined the formation of oxidants on the ...
