Trilogy Water Treatment System™
Trilogy represents a proprietary combination of three proven water treatment technologies each capable of addressing a significant industrial water contamination issue. Designed to be fit in two standard shipping containers, the Trilogy can be easily deployed to support either temporary water treatment needs or as part of a permanent water treatment facility.
NuEnergy’s modular design allows Trilogy to be a cost effective solution to a specific water contamination problem. Each self-contained Trilogy unit will include some combination of aerobic digestion, ultraviolet (UV) light, ozone treatment and filters.
While designed for use in any location, Trilogy will be especially effective in those remote global locations lacking reliable sources of clean, drinking water. The simplicity of the system will allow it to be powered by available renewable resources, such as solar and wind. When available, Trilogy will incorporate the NuEnergy Alkaline Hydrogen Fuel Cell or the TEG System, to provide a permanent source of power
– Aerobic Digestion – involves the oxidization and decomposition of organic material by micro-organisms in an oxygen rich environment. Essentially, the micro-organisms feed on the organic material. This is a process used extensively in sewerage treatment facilities.<
– Ultraviolet (UV) Light –An accepted and widely used method of disinfecting water, the effectiveness of UV is a function of several key parameters. Under some circumstances, if conditions are not optimized, some bacteria can repair itself and will not be killed<.
– Ozone Treatment – Ozone is a very potent disinfectant; it is bactericidal, viricidal, fungicidal and sporicidal and is active against yeasts & parasites. Ozone is created on site, disinfects and rapidly decays to oxygen. The combination of UV and Ozone will eliminate nearly all bacteria.
– Filters are incorporated into systems to remove any inorganic contaminants that may be present.
– Water contaminated with hydrocarbons (primarily petroleum) is processed through a six stage process
– In each of the six stages, microorganisms “digest” the hydrocarbon pollution until that pollutant is eliminated.
– A combination of two powerful disinfectants, ultraviolet light and ozone, eliminate remaining organic contaminants.
– Filters will be incorporated, as needed, to remove any remaining contaminants before water is released from the system.
The critical first step is to perform an analysis of the local conditions, focusing on the characterizing the actual contaminants in the water, identifying the source of the contaminants and determining the ultimate use of the treated water. Basic systems will treat at least 165 gallons an hour. To the extent possible, water will be treated to meet the World Health Organization Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality, described online at http://www.who.int/water_sanitation_health/dwq/fulltext.pdf.
