Filter-electrolyzer as an effective device for disposing of microplastics in wastewater

This research paper considers the methodology of a filter for wastewater purification from microplastics. The authors have developed a prototype device capable of separating large particles of microplastic from small ones with subsequent destruction of small particles using electro-oxidation. To increase the efficiency of the unit, the prototype’s construction includes a hydrogen collection option. With the implementation in this prototype of some elements of sensors and automatics this device can work successfully, with minimum human presence. To date there are no cheap and effective ways to clean wastewater from microplastics, so the research results of the authors of this work can be used to create large industrial filters capable of cleaning wastewater from microplastics.
