The pollution of fresh water sources and the increasing demands for clean potable water create a serious threat to mankind and the world. Presently, more than one billion people do not have access to clean drinking water, and within the next 10−15 years, approximately two-thirds of the global population will experience severe water shortages. The occurrence of toxins and contaminants in drinking water sources cause more than two million deaths annually, most of these deaths are of children under the age of 5 years old. Conventional methods using chlorination and ozone have been effectively utilized for disinfection in municipal water treatment, but there are growing concerns over the creation of hazardous by-products, pathogens, microcystin, and emerging contaminants such as toxic trace chemical contaminants in the municipal drinking water supplies in communities small and large across the US and around the world.
Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) can remove these pathogens, microcystin, and emerging contaminants to ensure safe drinking water supplies.
Genesis Water Technologies utilizes our innovative advanced oxidation systems integrating ozone with ultraviolet disinfection, hydrogen peroxide or other specific oxidants to create extremely reactive oxygen species and hydroxyl radicals that can destroy a wide range of pathogen and emerging contaminants in a drinking water source.
GWT Advanced Oxidation Systems have the following advantages for drinking water treatment:
- Removes toxic organic compounds, pathogens and emerging contaminants such as microcystin, and 1,4 dioxane.
- Can provide water disinfection.
- Modular systems, adaptable to smaller and larger communities across the world.
- Easier installation with optimized energy consumption.
In working with our clients and local sales and engineering partners worldwide, GWT provides integrated advanced oxidation water treatment solutions to small and mid-size communities.
These systems are scalable to accommodate specific requirements to meet the treatment needs of the client.
We understand the advanced oxidation process and we can assist you in providing safe and sustainable water treatment solutions. We support our clients in dealing with stricter regulations and emerging contaminants to ensure a clean water supply.
