Project Title Treatment of Dye Wastewater by Using Quantum Persistent Reflection Technology
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Wastewaters from textile industries constitute a threat to the environment in large parts of the world, as the degradation products of textile dyes are often carcinogenic. In addition, light absorption hindered by textile dyes creates problems to photosynthetic aquatic plants and algae. The main important pollutants in textile effluent are recalcitrant organic compounds, colour, toxicant and inhibitory compounds, surfactants and chlorinated compounds. During processing, 5-20% of the used dyestuffs are released into the process water and dye is the most difficult constituent to treat by conventional chemical and biological wastewater treatment. In addition to their visual effect and their adverse impact in terms of chemical oxygen demand, many synthetic dyes are toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic. The current existing techniques for the treatment of wastewater containing dyes have high cost, formation of hazardous by-products or intensive energy requirement. Quantum persistent reflection technology is an innovative technology based on its unique physical functions, by applying the equilibrium law of physics to quantum level covering all material physical properties, utilises radiations in the air and intensifies them into laseried hybrid optical packets, which can change material properties of any objects for effects of energising, suppressing or balancing. The modified properties remain stable and irreversible. In the treatment system, the technique will cut the higher molecule of the dye into the smallest size and this will reduce its contamination. The end of the treatment will produce high quality discharged water in terms of colour, COD, oxygen level and suspended solid.
