Elentec develops Electrochemical based systems as "clean" technology for the sustainable treatment of water and wastewater.
Falling Walls is a major international conference to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall which explores ways of using science and technology to improve the world, communities, business and individuals.
Elentec has been invited to present their ideas and approach at Falling Walls Ventures in November 2017.
Elentec to present at Falling Walls Ventures
Electro-Coagulation (EC) replaces traditional chemical water treatment. A key advantage of the process is the replacement of 'wet' coagulation chemicals (e.g. ferric chloride) with electrochemical cartridges containing safe and stable metal plates. This significantly reduces Heath & Safety constraints on site.
Key points for the Elentec system:
Modular design with small footprint. Standard sizes for 5m3/h and 10m3/h
Versatility enables purpose designed solutions
Power efficiency that enables off-grid operation (renewable energy)
Plug-and-play reactors replace storage of chemicals
Fully automated process
Complete solution with separation and polishing steps included
Removes heavy metals from waste streams
Removes phosphate/phosphorus from effluent streams
Removes arsenic from contaminated groundwater
Reduces solids in waste streams
Removes contaminants from shipping/marine effluent
Treats process water for recycling
Treats waste from anaerobic digestion and other agricultural processes
Emergency and disaster recovery units
Elentec EC technology has been applied over a range of industries including: Automotive, Anaerobic Digestion, Municipal Effluent, Aquaculture, Mining, Brewing, Metal Finishing, Dairy
Applications and what the technology does:
As a replacement technology for typical chemical coagulation, the same range of applications apply. Below is a list of applications where Elentec EC has been tested.
Elentec was formed in 2012 to commercialise more than 20 years of research and development by the directors of the company into electrochemical water treatment. R&D continues to be an important part of the company.
Elentec’s core technology is Electro-Coagulation (EC), now being recognised as a cost-effective alternative to traditional chemical water treatment. Elentec EC is a complete water treatment system including innovative separation, that can cover a wide range of flow rates and can be delivered in a standard container or as a mobile unit.
The technology has been developed after many years of testing across a wide variety of industries with differing waste streams. Continuing R&D is now delivering an oxidation system as well as ways to enable emerging processes to recover resources and create sustainable energy.
The advantages described in the technology section, demonstrate why Elentec EC is being used in these emerging processes - and our R&D will continue to deliver similar progress.
