CooLsuLa / Microplastic Degradation


Coolsula is a microplastics interception and degradation equipment which can improve the content of microplastics in drinking water. It is set between the clarification station and the sterilization station of the water treatment plant. The clarified water is filtered through the coolsula interception tank for microplastics, and then the microplastics liquid containing a small amount of water is introduced into the degradation tank for long-term degradation by Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
The carbon dioxide produced by the degradation of micro plastic can make Pseudomonas aeruginosa carry out photosynthesis and avoid carbon dioxide emission.
