Graphene Leaders Canada has its new GLC+™ WATER TECHNOLOGIES PLATFORM. The platform offers a disruptive solution to water pollution and remediation and is based on years of expertise in graphene solutions work with a keen focus in water filtration. The material has been developed as a loose granular adsorbent that can be integrated into existing filtration systems and can be tailored to remove numerous types of contaminants in water. The GLC+ material offers a highly versatile and cost-effective bolt-on solution with the material having the ability to be regenerated for numerous uses. GLC views the ease of use and long material lifetime to have exceptionally competitive features as compared to other treatment solutions. The completion of this development extends GLC’s comprehensive portfolio of innovative and ecologically-responsible graphene-enhanced product solutions.
Within the platform, heavy metals, arsenic, and selenium are only a few of the solutions which can be effectively managed. GLC has recently completed development of its selenium adsorbent for the treatment of industrial effluents. This involves a proprietary graphene oxide nano-composite material that has been demonstrated to remove both selenite and selenate from water over a pH range of 2-8. The adsorbent can be used in powder or bead form and is 100% effective in the removal of selenium from a variety of water sources.
