Plasma Activated Water is produced only by making use of water, air and electricity. Ambient air is brought into the plasma phase with electrical energy and plasma activated air is brought into contact with water. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen are dissolved into the water creating Plasma Activated Water.
The process of treating water with plasma is copied out of nature. When lightning strikes during a thunderstorm, rain and water are treated with plasma. It is one of nature's ways to fixate nitrogen in the form of nitrate, the most important fertilizer for plants and crops.
After the activation process, PAW possesses unique disinfecting properties that can be used for hygiene purposes. These properties are reduced over time and the reactive elements fall back to its original states leaving water with an elevated concentration of nitrate.
Seed treatment (hygiene & priming)
We are working on seed treatment with PAW, for hygienic seed and priming.
PAW is a sustainable alternative for chemicals to keep crops and plants healthy and free of diseases.
Each cubic meter of air contains 1 kg of nitrogen. Our PAW equipment is able to convert this nitrogen into nitrate dissolved in water, the most important fertilizer for plants.
Small scale water purification
Residues of medicines are a sever problem in our waste water. After flushing a toilet it is possible to treat waste water with plasma before it is discharged in our sewage system. Residues of medicines but also multi resistant microorganisms are broken down by plasma, and the overall toxicity the waste water is reduced significantly.
Medical (wound treatment)
Can PAW be used to treat infected wounds? We are performing research with several academical hospitals to identify the possibilities.
