Infinite Water Hydroxon water treatment technology
Infinite Water has announced third-party validation and endorsement of its Hydroxon technology for the treatment of drinking water to World Health Organization (WHO) and Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) standards. The Global Water Institute of UNSW conducted rigorous validation and testing while independent analysis was undertaken by SA Water, which operates National Association of Testing Authorities accredited laboratories.
Hydroxon is a technology based on the oxidation of biological processes within the human body, making the process efficient. It is said to decontaminate and disinfect water while using less energy and fewer chemicals than conventional water treatment systems, which often rely on energy-intensive UV light, ozone injection and membrane filtration or the use of chlorine.
The core technology is in the category of non-ozone based catalytic advanced oxidation (CAO), where hydroxyl radicals, which are highly reactive and the strongest oxidants that can be applied in water, are produced. These hydroxyl radicals can virtually oxidise any compound present in the water matrix.
A Hydroxon treatment plant is a decentralised solution that is modular and scalable. The plant can be containerised or skid-mounted, making it particularly relevant for the provision of potable water in remote and regional communities, and for tertiary treatment when repurposing wastewater.
The third-party testing and analysis confirms the high performance of the process for pathogen removal, achieving complete disinfection exceeding WHO and ADWG requirements for bacteria, viruses and protozoa without producing harmful disinfection by-products. In the case of viruses, the removal is close to 10,000 times greater than the designated standard.
The successful validation and testing shows the system can be used for a broad range of drinking water applications. Its integrated design and small footprint mean the technology can treat highly contaminated water to the most demanding drinking water standards simply and efficiently.
