The following is a description of the major components of the Powell Water Microalgae  System.

​​The Powell Water Microalgae System (PWMAS) provides lagoon aeration via microalgae (biological oxygen generators) that greatly improves wastewater treatment compared to both non-aerated lagoons and aerated discharging lagoons and can be done at a much lower lifetime cost compared with surface aerators.

 Systems Control Facility

A  microalgae growth and distribution center is built near the lagoon.

 What is Powell Water Systems Electrocoagulation?

  • electro-- apply an electrical charge to water
  • coagulation-- process of changing the particle surface charge, allowing suspended matter to form larger particles
  • advanced and economical water treatment technology.
  • direct current is applied to the first and last blade. 
  • the liquid then becomes a conductor, allowing the current to pass freely throughout the chamber. 
  • results in a flood of electrons into the water, neutralizing charged particles, causing them to precipitate out of solution. 
  • the metal blades react to the current by releasing charged metal ions that act like chemical coagulants.
  • ​removes suspended solids to sub-micron levels
  • breaks emulsions such as fats, oil and grease
  • oxidizes and eradicates heavy metals from water without the use of filters or the addition of separation chemicals

The Powell Water Systems will have the ability to produce economical and sustainable wastewater treatment anywhere in the world.

Electrocoagulation (EC)

During times of upset conditions in lagoon systems such as ice, illegal dumping of pesticides, fats, oils, and grease (FOG), electrocoagulation is used to insure towns and industrial lagoons are kept in compliance during these upset times. Electrocoagulation (EC) is also added as the final disinfection step in the PWMAS process, eliminating chemical/UV or other disinfection processes. Electrocoagulation is effective in removing 99+% or a 4-log removal of fecal coliform as well as a high removal rate of pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and viruses.
