Wastewater remediation and water purification

   

ADVANCED OXIDATION with catalyzed HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

Clean water is the crucial commodity. Hydrogen peroxide is an ideal tool for water purification, because it does not introduce any harmful chemicals such as bleach or chlorine and decomposes into water and oxygen, according to the reaction:

2 H2O2 → 2 H2O + O2

Catalyzed decomposition of H2O2 results in the abundant formation of hydroxide radicals which are extremely powerful in oxidation reactions. The resulting hydroxyl radicals in fast and efficient elimination of all  types of pollutants: biomass, organic matter, chemicals, dyes (even azo dyes), phenol, industrial wastes. Hydrogen Link's process cleans and disinfects water without introducing any harsh chemicals and does not affect solution pH (unlike Fenton reagents). The catalyst is heterogeneous, which means that it will not be dissolved in water and can can be remove and reused. Hydroxyl radicals are very short-lived (of the order of nanoseconds) therefore they do not remain in the water after the treatment.

Our catalyst  performance:

  • Extraordinary fast and powerful
  • Heterogeneous, solid state – can be recovered and repeatedly used
  • Does not introduce soluble ions (as Fenton methods do)
  • Works in the whole range of pH and also with stabilized H2O2
