Groundbreaking Horticulture Application for Voltea CapDI©
Sassenheim, February 2016- Authored by Heather Leighow
Voltea, the world’s leader in membrane Capacitive Deionization (CapDI©), has completed a groundbreaking horticulture application for treating vegetable washwater with the Holland Marsh Growers’ Association Water Project (HMGA).
In this specific project, beet water was tested using pre-filtration, with CapDI© removing TDS as a final polishing phase. The testing conducted by HMGA over a 2 month period proved that minimal pre-filtration, combined with CapDI©, achieved the goals of the washwater treatment. The detailed document from HMGA, with graphic representations and testing figures, can be viewed on their website, here: Ultrafiltration and DI Test-HMGA . This exciting application is useful for the purpose of reducing levels of TDS in the washwater to a point where water can be discharged into the environment or reused in the respective facility
Voltea has been delivering electrochemical water-conditioning equipment to institutional, commercial and industrial customers for over 9 years. Voltea’s CapDI© systems remove dissolved salts from water using electricity at a lower economic and environmental cost than any other available technology. Voltea was recognized as one of the 21 Technology Pioneers 2013 at the World Economic Forum, listed in the 2011 Global Cleantech 100 and won the best new technology award at the 2010 Global Water Summit.
