Legzdins' proprietary electrolytic technology isn't intended to replace water treatment plants, but to seamlessly plug into existing facilities.
"One of the advantages of this technology is it's extremely modular," explained Rhone. "We will manufacture modules that are four feet by four feet by four feet. These modules will have hundreds of different cells … Depending on the volume of waste water that a customer needs to treat, we can provide however many modules they need might need. The earliest applications for us will likely be in the chemical and steel industries because these are smaller volumes."
Rhone describes the process as straightforward but only possible today because of significant advances in materials sciences such as membranes, catalyst coatings and plastics combined with advanced knowledge of electrochemistry.
