The purification system

The purification system will include the adapted European carbon-based electrochemical oxidation ("CabECO") technology which is based on an energy efficient highly effective electrochemical oxidation of critical substances and microbial pollutants and applies a new type of metal electrodes which are coated with carbon based film. In addition the whole water purification system will contain the following additional technologies, developed by the consortium members:

  • Electrocoagulation and electrodialysis for inorganic substances (Spain)
  • CO2 evolution measurement system (CEMS) for monitoring microbial pollutants (South Africa)
  • Water quality management system (WQMS) for remote water quality control (South Africa)
  • Remote system monitoring and quality control (South Africa)
  • Solar energy supply (South Africa)

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 689925.
