The ELCAT™ is a
proprietary electro-catalytic wastewater treatment process that offers a high
degree of treatment of toxic, non-biodegradable materials quickly and at low
The first stage of the ELCAT™ process utilizes electrochemical oxidation
treatment in an electrolizer having insoluble electrodes, in presence of
chlorine ions (Cl) that form chlorine containing oxidizing agents. The second
stage of the ELCAT™ process includes catalytic oxidation
of the remaining pollutants present in the wastewater by non-chlorine oxidizing
agents, in the presence of an added catalyst.
Aquarius’ ELCAT™ offers substantially higher
purification of toxic, non-biodegradable material in half the time of other
technologies and at comparatively low cost. Compared to traditional methods, in
which oxygen-containing chlorine compounds are simply added to wastewater,
ELCAT™ treatment offers substantially higher level of
treatment. The ELCAT™ process purifies wastewaters such
as toxic chemical mixtures, including dyes, detergents, phenols, cyanides,
pesticides, herbicides and the like. The synergetic effect of the
ELCAT™ treatment leads to full color removal,
detoxification and odor elimination.
ELCAT™ is currently installed in several industrial
wastewater treatment facilities in chemical, food and textile industries.
Typical removal efficiencies of waste constituents are:
