"The environmental Protection Agency is soliciting innovations for the development of small unit drinking water systems that will inactivate contaminants including pesticides, organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and pathogens. In the US, 85% of all public water systems serve fewer than 3,300 people, thus these water systems are considered small. For providing these small unit drinking water systems, two findings highlight the challenges. First, the small communities typically have a low tax basis making affordability a challenge unless the system is low in cost. Secondly, the small communities typically do not have technical experts to manage the water disinfection system thus posing a challenge that the system must be simple to operate. To this end, Reactive Innovations, LLC will be developing an advanced contamination inactivation system that produces a mixed oxidant directly into a process flow stream. In the Phase I program, we will develop and demonstrate a small unit water disinfection system that can process upwards of 100,000 gallons/day via producing this mixed oxidant to inactivate contaminants. The immediate application of this proposed technology is toward an improved water disinfection system for small communities. The modular design of the reactor technology will allow us to scale it to medium and large water disinfection systems as well as scale it to produce higher levels of mixed oxidants for wastewater cleanup.
