PARTNERSHIP NATIONAL PROJECTS INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION INDUSTRIAL CONTRACTS NATIONAL PROJECTS INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION INDUSTRIAL CONTRACTS
Laboratory for Chemistry, Biology and Technology of Water
Al-nanoprah (20 – 100 nm) Filtration material (membrane) Filter system Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science Russian Academy of Sciences, Siberian Branch Microbiological filter NANOCLEAN WATER
PROPERTY OF FILTER MATERIAL Principe of filtration is connection of membrane filtration and electrostatic absorption. Removes: –bacteria –viruses –heavy metals Efficiency 99, % Filtration of water at relatively high speed (1 cm/s) and low resistance Nanofiltration is the last step of water filtration systems. E. coli E. faecalis BEFORE and AFTER filtration MICROBIOLOGICAL TESTS
WATER IN SLOVENIA WATER IN SLOVENIA IS GOOD, BUT … We never know the worth of water till the well is dry."We never know the worth of water till the well is dry." French proverb OR WHEN IT IS POLLUTED! AquaVallis addition there are areas with nitrates, pesticides in it sale of bottled water grows for 6% yearly risk of microbiological contamination is bigger.
OPINION OF SLOVENIAN EXPERTS prof. dr. Milenko ROŠ Presentation of tests Microbiological tests Sample No. / System Before filtration (CFU) After filtration (CFU) Efficiency (%) 7 Filter material E. Coli 1,0x ,0x10 4 E. coli Filter cartridge E. Coli 0,2x104 E. coli 0100 Maximum level E. coli = 0/100 ml
Tests on metal AquaVallis filter cartridge remuved tested metals (above all the metals, specially metals which form hydroxides ) Maximum level (Al, Fe) = 0,2 mg/L Sample Al mg/L Fe mg/L contam. water 1,01,2 filtrate<0,05 contam. water /17,3* filtrate /0,07 * water from well
AquaVallis filtration material … Use of nano materials enables high flow rates with high efficiency removal of bacteria and some heavy metals. Filter capacity can be easily increase with adding of new layers of filtration material.
REALIZATED APPLICATIONS Under counter filtration system / example of household installation Filtration system installed in dentists chare Instalation of filtration system in to shaft
mechanical filter MICROBIOLOGICAL FILTER + ACTVE CARBON FUTURE ACTIVITYES Fields of activities: research and development production marketing activities in Europe establishing of JV company AquaVallis Slovenia
IT CAN BE USED ANYWHERE TO ASHURE DRINKING WATER FROM POLLUTED SURFACE WATER PROPERTYES: Removal of solid particles, smell, taste… Removal of solid particles, smell, taste… Removal of microbiological agents and heavy metals from water Removal of microbiological agents and heavy metals from water Charging 24 V (lithium battery, photovoltaic module) Charging 24 V (lithium battery, photovoltaic module) Pump 0,2 kW Pump 0,2 kW Capacity 4,5 - 9 l/min Capacity 4,5 - 9 l/min Pressure max. 5 bar Pressure max. 5 bar Life time without service up tu l (one AquaVallis cartridge) Life time without service up tu l (one AquaVallis cartridge) Combining of two development areas in HTZ Velenje - photovoltaic -filtration systems for drinking water Independent Mobile Filtration Unit (IMFU)
MBR – membrane bioreactor Join project of HTZ and NIC Conventional system Sequencing batch reactors (SBR) is a base for MBR Developing system
SBR - SBR - Sequencing batch reactors
SBR for MBR External and internal mass transfer limitation. X > 10 g/l Flocculent sludge -small flocs. Process with lower OUR
Technology of production This is a project of ISPMS in AquaZone Ltd. for knowledge transfer of cartridge technology production
MAKETING ACTIVITES Market research for Slovenia and Spain. construction of web pages aquavallis.si international fears in Millan and Amsterdam education and informing program with intention to stimulate selling Integrated image of AquaVallis (trade mark protection, ideas for common look on the market) NANOCLEAN WATER
