In Vitold Bakhir Institute scientific-practical conference took place with demonstration of newly developed technologies of electrochemical activation.
In Vitold Bakhir Institute scientific-practical conference took place, the purpose of which was to demonstrate the newly developed technologies of electrochemical activation.
In particular, there were presented the following electrochemical technologies and technique:
- technology and technical means for synthesis of persulfuric acid, hydrogen peroxide, hydrochloric acid, peracetic acid, hypochlorous acid of high concentration;
- technology and technical means of synthesis of ethylene chlorohydrin and ethylene glycol;
- technology and technical means to obtain principally new types of chlorine-free detergents solutions based on percitric acid and electrochemically activated hydroxides of organic compounds, non-toxic to humans and animals;
- technology of desalination of both seawater and other liquids, using a fundamentally new electrodialysis devices without replacement of elements;
- technology and technical means for bioelectrochemical wastewater treatment (during treatment process an electric current is produced that feeds auxiliary electrochemical reactors);
- technology of industrial wastewater treatment with simultaneous production of electricity due to galvanic processes of destruction of industrial wastes of different chemical composition to a safe state in special electrochemical reactors;
- technology of reagentless electrochemical treatment and softening of natural fresh water, brackish water and water-salt solutions used for electrochemical systems feeding, in food and chemical industries.
Also questions of development of electrochemical reactors designed to produce hydrogen and oxygen from water at a voltage of no higher than 2 volts and currents up to 10,000 amperes and above were discussed. These reactors are capable to operate directly without power converters from solar, wind or geothermal plants, accumulating hydrogen and oxygen for later production of electricity in fuel cells.
