The soon-to-be-launched Flowrox Corona has been nominated for the Aquatech Innovation Award 2019, in the Waste Water Treatment category.

The event – also known as “the Oscars of the Water Technology Industry” – will announce the winner of the Innovation Award on November 4 during Aquatech Amsterdam 2019 opening ceremony.

Flowrox Corona is an industrial water treatment technology that utilizes non-thermal plasma in direct contact with water. The design ensures very large plasma-water contact area and offers efficient removal of pollutants from water; with carefully focused plasma energy, strong oxidants are produced from air and the treated water itself. The solution thus provides effective treatment without oxidative chemicals like chlorine or hydrogen peroxide, bringing lab-scale findings into commercial availability.

With no moving parts, the technology is designed for low operational costs and minimal maintenance.

The system has been successfully tested for many applications, including disinfection, COD reduction, colour and odour removal and destruction of various target pollutants and their transformation products. Flowrox Corona is a safe and environmentally friendly Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP).
