Optimization of Photocatalytic Water Purification System
Puralytics and Oregon Health Sciences University are working to advance a unique water treatment capability which uses ultra-violet light and fibers coated with nanomaterials to remove contaminants from water. Puralytics’ unique approach to water purification has the potential for removal of pathogens and organic chemicals with energy efficiency much improved in comparison with other methods.
Working with Oregon Health Sciences University, the team is working to effectively double the conaminant removal capability of their technology through optimized flow parameters of their photoreactor and development of nanoparticle catalyst materials.
Puralytics has also been awarded an NSF SBIR Phase I grant to remove MTBE from drinking water.
