Solar disinfection

Within LIFE INTEXT an innovative solar driven anodic oxidation system will be implemented by AUTARCON to treat pre-treated wastewater up to standards that are safe for human purposes and the use in crops with a smart irrigation system. The disinfection system generates a disinfectant (Cl2) from the minerals in the water to ensure that water can be stored and transported risk-free. 

The level of generated chlorine can be adjusted according to the requirements, thus minimizing energy requirements. Automatic operation, use of no additional chemicals and solar off-grid operation make it extremely low maintenance and easy to use. An advanced oxidation process (i.e. UV system) will also be applied to enhance EP removal.
