Filtro ecológico basado en zeolitas para obtener agua potable


Oferta Tecnológica
Una pyme rumana ha desarrollado un filtro ecológico para tratamiento de agua. Se trata de un dispositivo que transforma agua contaminada por partículas y elementos nocivos en agua potable. El filtro se basa en zeolita. El agua atraviesa la capa de zeolita, que es responsable de reducir iones de arsénico, plomo, zinc, mercurio, cloro, nitratos, nitritos, amoníaco, etc. La zeolita mejora el sabor, olor y color del agua, que presenta unas propiedades organolépticas superiores. Se buscan socios industriales interesados en establecer acuerdos de licencia y producción.


Ecological filter based on zeolites for obtaining drinking water
A Romanian innovative SME has developed an ecological filter for water treatment, a device that transforms water contaminated with particulate matter and harmful elements into tap drinking water. The filter material is a zeolite material from Romania. Industrial partners interested in licensing and production are sought.
A Romanian SME has developed an ecological filter based on zeolites for obtaining drinking water.
The volcanic tuff, the mother rock containing the mineral zeolite, has extremely reduced quantities of heavy metal impurities and other elements. This allows its use as a raw material in the process of obtaining potable water and food preparation, as well as in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and nutritional supplements industry.
The schematic diagram of the filter is given in Figure 1.
The first layer of zeolite, which is at the bottom of the cover, close to the orifice of the inlet, retains mechanically large contaminants, such as 5 microns size of sand, silt, water impurities, etc. The water passes further through the layer of zeolite, which is responsible for reducing a large range of ions of: arsenic, lead, zinc, mercury, chlorine, of some nitrates, nitrites, ammonia, etc. The zeolite improves the taste, smell and color of water, so that it will have particular superior organoleptic qualities.
The technical problems to be solved by the invention of the innovative Romanian SME are the following:
· ensuring retention of mechanical impurities, foreign bodies, occasionally or accidentally entered the water network and which clearly affect the quality of water. The water flow can be maintained between the desired limits, the filtration taking place perfectly, without barriers or occlusions.
· retention of harmful elements. The zeolites have a higher capacity retention of health harming components such as excesses of calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, up to mercury, zinc and radioactive elements. The voids and structural pores of zeolites can retain nitrates, nitrites, ammonia, small molecules with significant adverse effects on living organisms.
The innovative SME is looking for an industrial partner interested in licensing and manufacturing the filter based on zeolites, offering at the same time technical assistance (providing the technological know-how in order for the industrial partner to produce the ecological filter).
Advantages and Innovations:
The zeolite filters:
- are cheap, reliable and environmental-friendly;
- have superior stability and operating time longer than the currently used filters based on clay, charcoal, etc.
- no harmful for living organisms.
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
The patent has been applied for at the Romanian State Office for Trademarks and Inventions.
