Surfing the Innovation Wave: Accelerate Development of Eco-efficient Technologies for Municipal and Industrial Water Treatment

Global population growth, urbanization and changing climate patterns have increased the demand for potable water, wastewater reuse and value recovery from wastewater, treatment of industrial process water, and food and beverage. Consequently, there is increased demand for improved technologies that can provide sustainable treatment of water and wastewaters, and development of new fluid treatment methods.

Ultraviolet inactivation of Covid-19

Many major municipalities rely on ultraviolet (UV) disinfection of their drinking water and wastewater to protect their citizens and the environment. The novel coronavirus, Covid19, has been detected in water, and may be transmitted by improperly treated wastewater and drinking water. It is important that the sensitivity of Covid19 to UV be measured, in order to ensure adequate UV disinfection. This project will develop methods to accurately assess the UV sensitivity of coronaviruses, and measure the UV sensitivity of coronaviruses in water.

Accelerate development of new technologies and applications for advanced water treatment - Year 2

Global population growth, urbanization and changing climate patterns have increased the demand for potable water, wastewater reuse and value recovery from wastewater, and for remediation of industrial process water. Population growth also results in increased demand for the shipping of goods by ocean freight, with the associated risk of the transport of unwanted marine life from one location to another by the discharge of ballast water.

Technical and Economic Assessment of Implementing UV Treatment in Potable Reuse Process Trains - Year two

Driven by climate change induced water scarcity, further enhanced by rapid urbanization and population growth, potable water reuse initiatives are gaining interest. Potable reuse involves the indirect or direct use of highly treated municipal wastewater as a municipal drinking water source. Historically, the most commonly installed potable reuse train consisted of microfiltration, reverse osmosis (RO), and ultraviolet (UV) as treatment stages.

Modelling and Experimental Validation of the Interaction of Multiple Mercury Arc Lamps in Ultraviolet (UV) Reactors

Trojan Technologies uses ultraviolet (UV) lamps in reactors to purify water. When multiple lamps in a reactor are active at once, light emitted by the various lamps can interact with neighbouring lamps, creating effects that are not well taken into account in current industrial lamp models. The goal of this project is to develop a more accurate model, which accounts for these phenomena, to better predict the distribution of UV light inside a reactor. To do this, we have developed a numerical model of the photon-plasma interactions, which agrees well with work found in the literature.
