BDD electrodes have the proper combination stability, ruggedness, and lifetime for use in electrochemical oxidation applications, including electrochemical advanced oxidation. These BDD electrodes are fabricated on metal substrates (typically niobium (Nb), tantalum (Ta), or molybdenum (Mo)) for proper mechanical stability. This includes but is not limited to individual electrode plates, multi-electrode stacks, or metal-stubs for a rotating-disk electrode (RDE) setup. Custom designs and substrates are possible, if desired.
Our BDD electrodes have shown promise for use in many applications of water treatment. This includes per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) remediation as well as chemical oxygen demand (COD), total organic carbon (TOC), total ammonia nitrogen (TAN), and total nitrogen removal from contaminated water. Electrochemical oxidation processes with BDD electrodes can also work to reduce turbidity of wastewater samples. Fraunhofer USA CMW also has the capability to coat expanded metal mesh and other like-substrates/geometries for water disinfection and electrochemical ozone generation. For all electrochemical oxidation applications, customization of BDD electrodes to fit your experimental needs is often required. More information about PFAS Remediation can be found here.
Additionally, if you are interested in investigating electrochemical oxidation using BDD electrodes for your water treatment application, we can test your water for you! COD, TOC, TN, and TAN measurements will be completed, but analysis can be customized for your specific needs.
