Prototype of a continuous plug-flow reactor treatment system
Design Challenge
Groundwater in underground aquifers has been known to get contaminated with anthropogenic chemicals which cannot be filtered using current methods. Our team is tasked with developing a groundwater cleanup device using Colloidal Gas Aphrons (CGAs), a new water treatment method that could prove effective against these pollutants. The goal is to develop a functioning prototype that can effectively filter out a dye, serving as a proxy to the pollutants, and later develop a plan for a full-scale water treatment facility.
