Emerging Contaminants & Micropollutants


For the reduction and removal of a wide range of suspended solid contaminants in industrial effluent, from metal processing to pharmaceutical production,

ECOTHOR® is a highly effective, adaptable and robust treatment solution. A fully-customized platform, designed to achieve the specific removal targets of each application. It is also capable of tackling new emerging contaminants (such as PFAS). E2metrix is a world leader in electrochemical remediation technology. Its patented modular reactors and high-efficiency anodes allow for high treatment throughput at low cost. E2metrix’s technology effectively degrades 99%+ of the micropollutants in water.

The E2metrix advantages

The ECOTHOR® system employs an innovative breakthrough design (non-plate) to generate powerful metal ions and/or radicals, depending if operating in electro-coagulation or electro-oxidation mode. The system is well suited for targeted removal of micropollutants, suspended solids, organics, bacteria, and other contaminants that are difficult to remove with conventional treatment systems (such as PFAS). E2metrix is the distinct economical and environmental choice for industrial, commercial, and domestic wastewater treatment.

Advantages of the technology over conventional systems are:

  • Ability to treat high concentrations of ammonium characteristic of bio-waste streams
  • Capable of achieving very low concentrations of ammonium in the treated water (< 1 mg/L)
  • Does not produce carcinogens such as nitrate
  • Unlike biological treatment, the system does not produce the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide
  • Efficacy is independent of temperature
  • Treats water with high suspended solids and limited organic compounds
  • Relatively small footprint
  • Rapid start-up and shut-down
  • Lower capital cost than bio-systems of similar capabilities
  • Fully automated and remotely monitored, low maintenance
