Large scale diamond electrodes for industrial water treatment
The DiaCell® technology, based on boron-doped diamond films on Silicon substrate (BDD/Si), is a new candidate in the electrochemical water treatment market. Water disinfection and also wastewater treatment and recycling are the main targeted applications . While most of the private applications such as pool water disinfection  require electrode surfaces in the range of 0.1 m2 per unit, the industrial water treatment applications impose to work with square meter electrode areas. The first DiaCell® concept has been developed for a small scale or prototype approach, another concept must be proposed for larger scales.
