ECOTHOR®-AOP is a patented, cost-effective, and environmentally-sound process for the treatment and removal of complex organics and/or ammonia, with zero waste, from industrial and municipal wastewater. The contaminants are from a wide range of sources including solvents, aromatics, nitrogen compounds and organics.
At the core of the ECOTHOR®-AOP system is its proprietary electrochemical reactor which converts total recalcitrant compounds such as ammonia directly to gaseous nitrogen without producing the carcinogen nitrate and nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas. Responsible management of ammonia will inhibit the proliferation of algae and improve water quality of receiving water bodies.
ECOTHOR®– Electrolysis Technology Platform
ECOTHOR® is the next generation technology for the removal & recovery of nutrients, the reduction of micro-contaminants, the elimination of microorganisms and the advanced oxidation of complex organics.
ECOTHOR® is a comprehensive and cost-effective solution for advanced wastewater treatment.
Low OPEX – proprietary anode design with an optimized power management system ensures low operating costs.
Low CAPEX – flexible reactor sizing ensures that the system can easily scale up from less than 10 m3/d to more than 5,000 m3/d.
Electrochemical Advanced Oxidation
The electrochemical advanced oxidation process (AOP) is an electrokinetic treatment process whereby an electric current is applied across two electrodes to produce oxidants. This allows for the destruction of numerous types of toxic, recalcitrant organic substances via multiple oxidizing mechanisms. The E2metrix electro-oxidation technology does not use hazardous chemicals and does not produce any solid or liquid waste. Catalytic materials and electrodes are selected depending on the treatment application. E2metrix’s technology is protected by an extensive patent portfolio. Though the electro-oxidation mechanism do ressemble those of electrocoagulation, the main difference is with its capacity to oxidize and destroy pollutants, converting them safely to gas and to trace by-products.
