Brand and model: Own manufacture
Treatment capacity: from 250 to 2500 L/h per square meter of photoreactor
Description: This pilot plant is composed of photoreactors connected to a water tank and a diaphragm pump with anodized aluminum panels and borosilicate tubes through which the water and photoactive materials circulate. One of the photoreactors is used to carry out the oxidation of emerging contaminating molecules and pathogenic microorganisms, generating ultra pure water and CO2. The other is designed to reduce toxic metals such as arsenic, chromium, cadmium, mercury, etc., where precious metals such as gold, platinum and silver and others can be recovered. Both photoreactors use 2 different types of titanium compound biochars, produced in UDT, to perform the oxidation or reduction reactions according to the interest.
