Abstract
This Small Business Research Phase II project will develop a new electrochemical treatment device for purification of water. We envision the device will be used in an individual drinking water system. Electrochemical technologies have been recently considered as a promising alternative to address water quality concerns, and to overcome some disadvantages of conventional water individual water treatment devices. The Phase I effort successful demonstrated that the novel electrodes are capable of achieving P248 standard for disinfection of bacteria in one liter and small scale flow through system. The work proposed here will be the development effort necessary to develop a useful product.
