Why diamond?

Industrial wastewaters that contain hazardous, inhibitory and/or bio-refractory chemicals, are potentially toxic for biological treatment and considered difficult to treat. The problematic components in such wastewaters can be recalcitrant dissolved pollutants and include: active pharmaceutical ingredients, complex and halogenated organics, reduced sulfur species, and nitrogen-containing compounds. Standard biological wastewater treatment technologies simply cannot effectively treat these compounds.

Element Six's boron doped diamond (BDD) is the ideal material for electrochemical advanced oxidation processes, which destroy bio-refractory chemicals and recalcitrant organic pollutants in the industrial wastewater, mineralising them to CO2 and H2 using electrons (e-) provided by electrical current.

Scientists from our global team are always available to discuss how the properties of our boron doped diamond electrodes deliver an effective, reliable and economical solution that is capable of tackling even the toughest of wastewaters.

Diamond-enabled home sanitation solutions

EnozoHOME, powered by Element Six's boron-doped diamond, uses water and passes it through an electrolytic cell with diamond electrodes causing an electro-chemical reaction that creates aqueous ozone, which is then used as a multi-purpose cleaner that can also sanitise and deodorise all kinds of home surfaces and items.
