PROJECTS

Pellucid Water is advancing a concept for water decontamination that has potential application within many sectors of the economy, wherever water is pretreated for consumption or processing and wherever water is post-treated to remove accumulated wastes.

Municipal Wastewater

 

The vial on the left contains influent to a municipal  wastewater treatment plant.  The vial on the right is the influent after treatment with cold plasma.  The precipitate contains organic and inorganic compounds.  The dissolved phosphorus content in the clear liquid was reduced to 0.04 PPM.

Paper Mill Effluent

 

The vial on the left contains untreated effluent from a paper mill, and the vial on the right is the same effluent after treatment with cold plasma.  The recovered fiber could recycled as filler material for new paper production, and the clear water recycled as process water.

Food Processing Effluent

 

The vial on the left contains effluent from a cheese factory.  The vial on the right is the same effluent after treatment with cold plasma.  The precipitate could be used as a feedstock for an anaerobic digester for the production of biogas and electrical power.  The clear water could be recycled as process water.

Dairy Effluent

 

The vial on the left contains effluent from an anaerobic digester on a dairy farm.  The vial on the right is this same effluent after treatment with cold plasma.  The  precipitate contains organic compounds and nutrients, phosphorus and nitrogen, that could be recycled  as  a high-grade soil amendment and fertilizer.  The clear liquid could be used for livestock.
