Waste Water Treatment & Water Purification Industries:

 

Introduction:

As simple as it may seem, the treatment of contaminated waters is as diverse and complicated as the operations from which it comes. In today's environment, where merely transferring contaminants from one medium to another is no longer acceptable, it is no surprise that a powerful oxidizer that looks like water -- in its appearance, chemical formula and reaction products -- should be so widely used. This is H2O-BOO2ST® - a powerful yet versatile oxygen/electron oxidant that is both safe and effective.

 

H2O-BOO2ST® Advantages


Powerful H2O-BOO2ST® is one of the most powerful, natural and safe oxidizers known -- stronger than chlorine, chlorine dioxide, and potassium permanganate (see chart below).

Safe - Despite its oxidizing power, H2O-BOO2ST® is completely non-toxic to animals and humans. Consequently, H2O-BOO2ST® has none of the problems of gaseous release or chemical residues that are associated with other volatile and carcinogenic chemical oxidants. And since H2O-BOO2ST® is totally miscible with water, the issue of safety is totally non-existent. Industrial strength H2O-BOO2ST® is a strong oxidizer with high electron levels and yet requires no special handling precautions and no specialized storage or handling equipment.

Versatile - The fact that H2O-BOO2ST® is used for seemingly converse applications proves its versatility. For example, it can inhibit microbial growth (as in the biofouling of water circuits) and encourage microbial growth (as in the bioremediation of contaminated ground waters and soils). Similarly, it can treat both easy-to-oxidize pollutants (iron and sulfides) and difficult to oxidize pollutants (solvents, gasolines and pesticides).

Selective - The reason why H2O-BOO2ST® can be used for such diverse applications is the different ways in which its power can be directed -- termed selectivity. By simply adjusting the conditions of the reaction (e.g., pH, temperature, dose, reaction time, and/or catalyst addition), H2O-BOO2ST® can often be made to oxidize one pollutant over another, or even to favor different oxidation products from the same pollutant. 

 

ORP - Oxidation Reduction Potential

An important method of measuring the disinfection level in water is by ORP. Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. H2O-BOO2ST® with it’s high ORP readings is an example of an excellent oxidizer. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide.

Oxidation is a transfer of electrons, therefore whenever electrons are transferred from one location to another, oxidation occurs. The entity that loses the electron (microbe) is oxidized, and the one that gains the electron is reduced. The transfer of electrons creates an electro-chemical potential measured in millivolts (mV) known as ORP or Oxidation Reduction Potential. Oxidation occurs in the presence of an oxidizer (H2O-BOO2ST®) because it is “hungry” for electrons. The stronger the oxidizer, the faster the electrons are transferred, and the faster the microbes are killed. Therefore it is ORP (mV) that measures disinfection rate and not ppm of oxidizer.

ORP levels of 650mV or higher are recommended for the affective disinfection control of water. The (WHO) World Health Organization has established a minimum ORP level of 650 mV for proper disinfection in water and 750 mV or higher for some viruses, etc. Automatic ORP monitoring and dispensing systems are available for any project as well as inexpensive portable hand held testers.

 

Where is ORP used?

As you can tell by the above paragraphs, ORP is used for drinking water, swimming pools and spas. ORP is also used for cooling tower disinfection, groundwater remediation, bleaching, cyanide destruction, chrome reductions, metal etching, fruit and vegetable disinfection, and dechlorination. For a further explanation of ORP and how it works please visit Pulse Instruments slide presentation on the Internet at www.orpmeter.com 

 

H2O-BOO2ST® Diverse Uses


Since it was first commercially used in 1991, H2O-BOO2ST®'s use has now grown to dozens of different consumer, industrial and agricultural industries. In addition to pollution control, H2O-BOO2ST® can be used to bleach textiles and paper products, and to manufacture or process foods, minerals, petrochemicals, and consumer products (detergents). Its use for wastewater or water contamination/purification pollution control may someday rival the use of chlorine dioxide or even hydrogen peroxide without any of their respective detrimental or instability side effects. Today, H2O-BOO2ST® is readily available throughout the world in drum concentrations of up to 35% free oxygen by volume.

  • Evironmental Applications of H2O-BOO2ST®:

H2O-BOO2ST® applications span the range of possible media: air, water, wastewater, soils and sludges. Depending on the objective, H2O-BOO2ST® may be used either alone or in combination with other processes to enhance their performance.

  • Stand-Alone Applications

Odor Control - Oxidizes hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, amines and aldehydes. H2O-BOO2ST® may be applied directly to aqueous wastes containg these odorants, or to wet scrubbers used to remove them from airstreams. If the odors are the result of biological activity, H2O-BOO2ST® may instead be added as a preventative to eliminate the anoxic conditions which favor the generation of odors

  • Corrosion Control

H2O-BOO2ST® destroys residual chlorine and reduced sulfur compounds thiosulfates, sulfites, and sulfides) which form corrosive acids when condensed onto processing equipment and oxidized by air.

  • BOD/COD Removal

H2O-BOO2ST® oxidizes both organic and inorganic pollutants which contribute to BOD and COD. H2O-BOO2ST® may also affect BOD/COD removal by enhancing the performance of other processes (see below).

  • Inorganic Oxidation

H2O-BOO2ST® oxidizes cyanides, NO2/SO2, nitrites, hydrazine, carbonyl sulfide, and other reduced sulfur compounds mentioned above (odor/corrosion control).

  • Organic Oxidation

H2O-BOO2ST® hydrolyzes formaldehyde, carbon disulfide, carbohydrates, organophosphorus and nitrogen compounds, and various water-soluble polymers; and (with catalysis) destroys phenols, BTEX pesticides, solvents, plasticizers, chelants, and virtually any other organic requiring treatment.

  • Metals Oxidation

H2O-BOO2ST® oxidizes ferrous iron, manganese, arsenic, and selenium to improve their adsorption, filtration, or precipitation from process waters and waste waters.

  • Toxicity Reduction/Biodegradability improvement

H2O-BOO2ST® may also help chemically digest complex organics into smaller, less toxic and more biodegradable fragments.

  • Disinfection/Bio-Control

H2O-BOO2ST® may help check excess biogrowth in water supplies and cooling circuits, and (with catalysis) disinfect process waters and biological effluents.

 

H2O-BOO2ST® Enhancement (Combination) Applications


  • Flocculational Precipitation

H2O-BOO2ST® may help oxidize metal complexes and improve the performance of inorganic flocculants. 

 

  • Air Flotation 

H2O-BOO2ST® may help release evenly dispersed micro-bubbles which entrain emulsified fats, oils and greases to enhance their removal in air flotation units and grease traps.  

  • Biotreatment (As a pretreatment)

H2O-BOO2ST® degrades toxic, refractory or bio-inhibitory organic materials, rendering them more amenable to biodegradation. In conjunction with - provides a supplemental source of dissolved oxygen in-situ (penetrating both soil columns and bioflocs, eliminating the sludge bulking phenomenon). As a polishing step – H2O-BOO2ST® destroys trace levels of organics that pass through biotreatment, providing the ancillary benefit of disinfection.  

  • Filtration

H2O-BOO2ST® may help control biofouling of UF and RO membranes while eliminating foul odors from media filters.  

  • Carbon adsorption

H2O-BOO2ST® may enhance the adsorption of many pollutants while providing dissolved oxygen to support biologically-active carbon beds (improving removal efficiencies still further).  

  • Air scrubbers

H2O-BOO2ST® may replace chlorine for deodorizing off-gases and controlling VOC's. Depending on the target pollutant(s), catalytic or Advanced Oxidation Processes may be required. 

 

 

H2O-BOO2ST® Processes


Concentrated H2O-BOO2ST®

Most H2O-BOO2ST® applications involve its simple injection into the water stream with no requirement for additional chemicals or equipment. These include the control of biogrowth (slime), the supply of supplemental oxygen, the removal of FOG and chlorine residuals, and the oxidation of sulfides/sulfites, metals, and other easy-to-oxidize components of BOD/COD.

 

Catalytic H2O-BOO2ST®

The more difficult-to-oxidize pollutants may require H2O-BOO2ST® to be super-activated with catalysts such as iron, copper, manganese, or other transition metal compounds. These catalysts may also be used to speed up H2O-BOO2ST® reactions that may otherwise take hours or days to complete. H2O-BOO2ST® catalysis may occur either in solution (using soluble catalysts) or in packed columns (using solid catalysts).

 

Solution Catalysis

The most commonly used solution catalyst is iron. The reaction requires a slightly acidic pH and results in the formation of highly reactive hydroxyl radicals (OH) which are capable of degrading most organic pollutants. Another solution catalyst is copper, which is often used to destroy cyanides. Other metals also show catalytic activity with, H2O-BOO2ST® and may be used to selectively destroy specific pollutants.

 

Packed Column Catalysis

Solid catalysts eliminate the need to add soluble metals to the waste stream, and may offer greater flexibility in terms of reaction rates, selectivity, and the need for pH adjustment.

 

Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP's)

AOP's represent the newest development in H2O-BOO2ST® technology applications, and are loosely defined as processes that generate highly reactive oxygen radicals without the addition of metal catalysts. Typically, this means combining H2O-BOO2ST® with additional ozone and/or ultraviolet light. The result is the on-site total destruction of refractory organics without the generation of sludges or residues. This technology could be applied to treat contaminated ground waters, to purify and disinfect drinking waters and process waters, and to destroy trace organics in industrial effluents.

 

 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


H2O-BOO2ST® is a broad spectrum antimicrobial solution created from water and sodium chloride in a proprietary manufacturing process.

 

APPLICATIONS

H2O-BOO2ST® is an extremely potent and effective broad spectrum bactericide, fungicide, anti-viral, anti-yeast and anti-parasitic solution. H2O-BOO2ST® has been shown to increase the blood oxygen saturation levels in human subjects when taken sublingually or consumed orally. Initial studies also indicate that when taken, H2O-BOO2ST® may also lower blood pressure. H2O-BOO2ST® contains high levels of microbe killing electrons and is environmentally safe with no known toxicity to man or animals.

 

MODE OF ACTIVITY

Studies indicate that the antimicrobial activity of H2O-BOO2ST® is in the cytoplasmic membrane. The oxidation reduction potential (ORP) of H2O-BOO2ST® appears to prevent the uptake of amino acids while disorganizing the cytoplasmic membranes causing a leakage of low molecular weight cellular contents and rendering the microbes harmless by transfer of electrons from the microbe.

 

BIODEGRADABILITY

H2O-BOO2ST® is considered biodegradable according to the "Standard Test Methods for Determining the Anaerobic Biodegradation Potential of Organic Chemicals". ASTM Standards, Section 11, Water and Environmental Technology, Procedure E 1196-2, pp. 879-901, 1993.

Bottled Water Industry:

Who would buy oxygen-rich water containing H2O-BOO2ST®?

Any customer interested in a holistic approach to health and wellness, (that is preventing health problems instead of curing them once they occur.) That also includes athletes and those wanting to get the most out of physical performance.

 

How does oxygen benefit the consumer?  

1) Oxygen is critical for optimal health & performance.  
 
2) Oxygen enables the body to utilize nutrients and create energy.

3) Our current lifestyles rob life-giving oxygen from our bodies. Factors such as: Toxic & Emotional Stress, Physical Trauma & Infections, Reduction in Atmospheric Oxygen, Improper Diets & Lack of Exercise rob oxygen from our bodies.  

4) Oxygen works hand in hand with vitamins, minerals and amino acids to obtain a higher level of health.  

5) Oxygen fits the definition of a vitamin: "a substance found in foods, is essential for life, and not necessarily manufactured by the body.
 
6) Oxygen charges up the immune system and enhances all metabolic processes.
  
7) Oxygen helps increase stamina, endurance, mental sharpness & performance.

8) Oxygen can help in the reduction of Lactic Acid build-up.  

 


 

Why Should You Enrich Your Bottled Water with H2O-BOO2ST®?  

1)
NICHE MARKETING by producing a healthier product for consumers.

2) NO TOXICITY POTENTIAL or dangers associated with pressurized oxygen canisters. Environmentally safe with no dangerous side affects.  

3) TOTALLY NATURAL, NON-TOXIC, COLORLESS, pH BALANCED and COMPLETELY SAFE TO USE AS DIRECTED.

4) 3 YEAR SHELF LIFE

5) NO SPECIAL HANDLING & CAPITAL OUTLAY for special bottling equipment.  

6) SHIPS & STORES EASILY in 55 gallon HDPE drums.

7) NO MASSIVE INVENTORY or licensing fees.  

8) COMPLETELY STABLE from temperatures ranging from freezing to boiling.  

9) NO SPECIAL CLEANING. Because of its high oxygen concentration, it is also a powerful and yet completely natural disinfectant killing most anaerobic microbes on contact.

10) WILL NOT DISSIPATE through the small pores in PET bottles as other oxygen gases. H2O-BOO2ST® is concentrated bio-available oxygen in stable liquid form.

11) Can be added to bottled water during the manufacturing process in mixing or storage tanks or may be injected as would flavorings directly into the bottles on the filling line.

 

 

Comparing H2O-BOO2ST® vs. OZONE

The oxygen in H2O-BOO2ST® has many similar properties to ozone (O3). Ozone, of course, is a very unstable molecule that decomposes in diatomic oxygen (O2) and singlet oxygen (O1). O1 has twice the oxidation potential, as does O2 so it is primarily responsible for the anti-microbial properties attributed to ozone in the water preservation and disinfecting industries.

H2O-BOO2ST® is comprised primarily of QUAD-ATOMIC® oxygen molecules. These are configured in a hub-like structure of four atoms of oxygen (molecular weight of 16) held in a very stable bond by a singlet hydrogen atom. Our proprietary manufacturing process creates these very stable molecules in concentrations as high as 25% free oxygen by volume (concentrated H2O-BOO2ST®).

H2O-BOO2ST® reacts similarly to ozone in killing pathogens. Ozone is generally produced at a rate of about 4 p.p.m. for water purification. The half-life is about 18 - 20 minutes. You can see that H2O-BOO2ST®, at ratios of 250,000 mg/L of free oxygen and with an over 2 year shelf life stability, has a far greater potential for water preservation than does ozone.

The bottled water companies we work with around the world have accepted a minimum standardization for adding H2O-BOO2ST® to bottled water or packaged water. We recommend a MINIMUM of 1 ml of H2O-BOO2ST®  per 500mL (16.9 fl. oz.) of Reverse Osmosis (R/O) or Distilled water. This would provide a considerable amount of oxygen to preserve the water while also providing the user with added bio-available oxygen for metabolism. H2O-BOO2ST® is environmentally friendly, safe to use and easy to store.
