Title: (EN) METHOD FOR TREATING WASTEWATER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A system for treating wastewater is disclosed that includes a series of interconnected reactor tubes. Each reactor tube comprises an outer cathode and an inner anode. The inner anode is positioned within the outer cathode. A voltage differential is applied across the inner anodes and the outer cathodes as wastewater flows between the inner anodes and outer cathodes. As the wastewater flows through the reactor tubes, chlorine based elements are generated to treat the wastewater. The system can include an injector to add chloride salts into the wastewater to generate chlorine based elements. The system can also include a feedback path to divert a portion of the wastewater with chlorine based elements back to the influent wastewater so that the chlorine based elements are mixed with the influent wastewater. The inner anode and the outer cathode can comprise non-donating conductive materials.
