||PCT/CA2014/050367||XOGEN TECHNOLOGIES INC.||WILSON, Tyler, Lee|
Methods and systems for reducing a radioactive isotope in a waste stream in a waste treatment system involve performing a unit process of the waste treatment system by adsorbing radioactive isotope in the waste stream with an adsorbent, and contacting the adsorbent with oxyhydrogen-rich gas generated on-site by an oxyhydrogen gas generator that implements water dissociation technology. The oxyhydrogen gas generator involves applying an electrical signal to a series of closely spaced electrodes that are submerged in the waste stream to produce oxyhydrogen-rich gas from a water component of the waste stream. Operation of the oxyhydrogen gas generator in the waste stream may accomplish one or more unit processes for waste treatment, such as oxidation, stripping, floatation, disinfection, conditioning, stabilization, thickening, and dewatering, among others.
