Blue Water Filterings ... Special Announcement

Disinfection without chlorine byproducts, removal of endocrine disruptors, increased dissolved oxygen in your effluent, and non-detect total phosphorus levels in one cost-effective process.

Sound too good to be true?  Read on.

Blue CAT™ Has Arrived

Blue Water’s next-generation technology, known as Blue CAT™, has been operational at the Hayden Wastewater Research Facility for over 3 months.  This process adds multi-mode, catalytic oxidation as a simple upgrade to the base Blue PRO™, reactive filtration process.  Our results for a single-filter system include:

  • Pre-reactor catalytic oxidation potentials up to 900 mV; 650 mV for 30 seconds is considered sufficient for disinfection
  • Removal of fecal coliforms to <2 cfu/100 mL
  • Improved total phosphorus removal, over 95% reduction in one filter
  • TOC reduction from 4 to 1.5 mg/L; this is an analog for micropollutants (i.e., endocrine disruptors)
  • Process effluent turbidity of 0.1-0.3 ntu
  • 40% lower iron doses, with effluent iron of only 0.06 mg/L Fe

These results go beyond proof-of-concept for disinfection and destruction of organic contaminants like endocrine disruptors, and the system is not yet optimized!  A significant sampling trial is planned, including analyses of specific endocrine disrupting chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and pathogens.
