ARo-Nite: Nitrate → N2 gas
Step 1: Natural gas (methane) is fed to a steam-methane reformer (Future)
Step 2: The reformer splits the methane into Hydrogen and Carbon dioxide (Future)
Step 3: The Hydrogen is fed to the APT Reactor which feeds the Hydrogen to a biofilm. The biofilm consumes the Hydrogen and the target contaminant from the water.
Step 4: The Carbon Dioxide is used for pH control.
Step 5: Treated water is filtered and/or disinfected using conventional technologies.
Proven Project – Cucamonga Valley Water District
Client has 12 out of 30 wells shut down due to nitrate contamination
- All well are high in nitrate >70 ppm
- Target nitrate <31 ppm
- Plant operated for demonstration testing for CDPH approval
- CDPH(California Department of Public Health ) approval of the process received July 2013
