Abstract:

Seldon Laboratories, LLC, proposes a lightweight, low-pressure water filtration device that harnesses the unique properties of nanoparticles to destroy or remove waterborne pathogens. A 2-inch diameter version of the device is estimated to allow a flux rate of 100 ml/minute at less than 0.05 psi. The device is composed of a conductive material that should limit fouling and promote the efficient recharging of the membrane. The innovation represents a significant advancement in membrane technology as it offers superior filtration effects with significantly reduced operating costs. The device could be incorporated into existing systems or designed as a standalone system for water treatment. It is expected that Phase I would demonstrate of the feasibility (efficacy and cost considerations) of the system and Phase II would result in prototype development.
