CooLsuLa / Microplastic Degradation Device


CooLsuLa is a degradation device that uses Pseudomonas aeruginosa to reduce microplastics in water purification plants. CooLsuLa is installed between the clarification device and the sterilization device. The clarified water will go through the blue CooLsuLa for the first stage of decomposition, and then the white CooLsuLa recycles the decomposed water and microplastics and degrades them. The radial film sheet allows Pseudomonas aeruginosa to contact water for degradation reaction and obtain the product carbon dioxide and water.
