The Innovative Technology Award recognises Arvia’s patented Organics Destruction Cell (ODC™) system for the removal of recalcitrant organics, as a notable technological innovation. The simple and modular ODC system was selected for its effectiveness in treating organic water pollutants that cannot be removed via existing technologies, and its original combination of two well-known treatment methods – adsorption and advanced oxidation - to produce a unique, environmentally sustainable solution. Arvia’s unique proprietary adsorbent, Nyex, regenerates in situ, providing for continuous treatment without secondary waste. The Arvia ODC reduces the common measure of water pollution, known as COD or Chemical Oxygen Demand, and removes micro-pollutants such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals and contaminants of emerging concern from water and waste-water, to enable water recycling or safe discharge back to the environment.
Arvia Technology will be honored during WEFTEC® 2016, the world’s largest annual water quality conference and exhibition. The event is expected to host thousands of global water quality experts and exhibiting companies at New Orleans Morial Convention Center from September 24-28, 2016.
