Advanced electrochemical reactor for the removal of micropollutants and microorganisms from aqueous matrices

Research output: PatentInternational PCT application

Abstract

The present application discloses an advanced electrochemical reactor for the removal of micropollutants and microorganisms from aqueous matrices with high efficiency. The presently described reactor comprises at least four electrodes placed in a parallel configuration across the reactor chamber with their polarization interchanged between anode and cathode. The electrodes of the present reactor are made of a flexible ribbon material with circular mesh shape of metal mixed oxide, and configured in shapes selected from a circular shape, helix Spring shape or double helix shape. This reactor provides a safer wastewater as final product to be reused in, for example, irrigation, or for a safer discharge in the water bodies avoiding contamination spread and deleterious effects to the ecosystem and food chain.
