The Business Index.com reports that a University of Manchester spin-out has developed a chemical-free way of recycling domestic greywater and won an £100,000 prize to help develop it's technology. Arvia Technology secured the cash after winning the Competition for Disruptive Solutions - a competition run by the Technology Strategy Board.
- The process uses in situ regeneration of an inert, non-toxic carbon media (Nyex™)
- Pollutants are removed from the process stream and destroyed leaving no secondary waste requiring further treatment
- Controlled venting allows safe discharge of the small volumes of gaseous by-products generated
- Modular design can be scaled for all treatment requirements
