Drinking Water Treatment, Reduce Disinfection Byproducts

MIOX is a cutting-edge technology company that has been making EPA approved safe drinking water for close to twenty years. Many communities are turning to MIOX clean water technology for their surface water treatment and groundwater water treatment because Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) is a proven disinfectant for cost-effectively reducing disinfection byproducts and improving the quality and safety of drinking water.

MIOX’s extensive experience in water disinfection ranges from rural communicates to large cities with more than 10 million people – such as city of Bogota, Columbia (testimonial) where MIOX on-site chemical generation cost-effectively replaced dangerous chlorine gas.

AOP for Surface Water

Peer-reviewed article in Journal of Advanced Oxidation Technologies

Ongoing work is being conducted to facilitate the implementation of MIOX’s on-site AOP for a variety of water treatment applications.  Some of the results can be read in the peer-reviewed article published in the Journal of Advanced Oxidation Technologies

You can read the full article here:
“Investigation of the use of Chlorine Based Advanced Oxidation in Surface Water: Oxidation of Natural Organic Matter and Formation of Disinfection Byproducts”
This peer-reviewed article was published in the Journal of Advanced Oxidation Technologies, cited as: J. Adv. Oxid. Technol. Vol.16, No. 1, 2013, Page: 137-150.AOP for Surface Water

In 2009, MIOX received a Phase I Small Business Initiative Research (SBIR) award to investigate chlorine-based UV oxidative processes for the removal of contaminants in water.  Upon successful completion of Phase I, our science team was awarded Phase II in 2011.  Most recently, MIOX was granted additional SBIR funding to broaded commercial applications of on-site generated AOP.

Challenges in Municipal Water Treatment and the MIOX Solution

You all know MIOX chemistries are ideal for final disinfection of drinking water, but did you know they can address a wide variety of other treatment challenges?  Watch this drinking water treatment primer where Tom Muilenberg discusses how MIOX can help you or your customers meet drinking water process goals.

In this first of a three-part series on the topic, we will offer an overview of both groundwater and surface water treatment issues and solutions.  Part 2 will cover groundwater in detail, and the third webinar will offer a more in-depth discussion of surface water treatment challenges.

For more information or to request a quote, visit our Contact MIOX page to tell us a little more about your project goals.

Download the presentation slides for Challenges in Municipal Water Treatment and the MIOX Solution, Part 1 of 3

In this session we’ll discuss:

  • Groundwater Treatment
    • Typical process flow
    • Iron and Manganese Removal
    • Hydrogen Sulfide Removal
  • Surface Water Treatment
    • Improved coagulation (the microflocculation effect) for reduction in coagulant dosing and improved removal of natural organic matter
    • Reduction of disinfection byproduct (DBP) formation
    • Breakpoint chlorination of ammonia

We’ll also be providing some rules of thumb for calculating required dose rates for sizing purposes and set the stage for Drinking Water Treatment Parts 2 and 3.
