From science to application
Resonance- & Frequency-Based Technologies: Harnessing vibrations for innovative applications
Nanoresonance offers water treatment solutions founded on physical principles, requiring no chemical additives (so-called, Free-Of-Chemicals Water Treatment).
It provides savings in maintenance costs while decreasing environmental footprint according to sustainable and regenerative strategies
Nanoresonance Industries has developed a groundbreaking sustainable approach to wastewater treatment using electromagnetic and frequency-based controls. Unlike traditional chemical and biological methods, Nanoresonance Industries uses physical forces and effects to control contaminants. It includes electromagnetic resonance, inductance, cavitation and specific frequency waves to remove contaminants.
Specifically, Nanoresonance Industries applies ultrasound waves at optimal frequencies to induce cavitation and disinfect wastewater. They also use electromagnetic induction and resonance at targeted frequencies for contaminant flocculation and separation. These science-based physical-electromagnetic methods provide a more eco-friendly alternative to harsh chemicals.
Nanoresonance Industries’ technologies enable wastewater treatment without the use of toxic chemicals, expensive flocculents, intense aeration, or space-intensive biological reactors. Their physically-based solutions achieve a “greener” treatment process that is economic to operate while generating minimal environmental impact.
By controlling contaminants through precise electromagnetic fields and frequency manipulation instead of chemicals or biology, Nanoresonance Industries eliminates the drawbacks of conventional wastewater plants.
Through the focused application of electromagnetic resonance at specific frequencies, ultrasound-induced cavitation, and magnetic induction, Nanoresonance Industries is pioneerings a new frontier of wastewater treatment that is sustainable, effective and implementable on any scale. Their groundbreaking approach promises to make wastewater management more eco-friendly, affordable and practical than ever before.
Nanoresonance Industries’ technologies harness the natural power of electromagnetism and frequency to achieve contaminant removal, while avoiding the use of harmful chemicals, expensive resources, and space-intensive facilities. Their solutions represent a “third way” of wastewater treatment that is sustainable, cost-effective and scalable for any application.
Exposing wastewater to resonance- & frequency-based methods enhances the coagulation process used for flocculating and removing contaminants. This modifies the surface charge of particles, improving their ability to aggregate into larger flocs that settle more easily. This could allow for improved removal of particles, pathogens, turbidity and some dissolved pollutants via filtration.
By producing larger, heavier flocs, we accelerate the sedimentation process in wastewater treatment. Flocs settle to the bottom of clarifiers and separators more rapidly, shortening required retention times. This results in the reduction of equipment sizes and costs.
We stimulate the production of reactive oxygen species that promote the oxidation of contaminants in wastewater. Oxidation can help break down larger particles, pathogens, organics, inorganics and other pollutants into forms that are easier to remove through filtration, ion exchange and other mechanisms.
Contaminants: phosphorus (P)
Removal efficiency: 95%
Old-style approaches require the addition of flocculants (e.g., synthetic polymers), which are expensive, increase sludge volume, and contain harmful monomers or break down into toxic byproducts.
Innovation by Nanoresonance allows direct enhancement of flocculation (clumping) through dipolar attractions and rotations. Electromagnetic induction causes particles to collide and stick together into larger flocs that settle faster. Stronger, more stable flocs are created that are able to resist breakdown, improving overall removal efficiency.
For example, cobalt-doped hematite (Co-Hem) particles removed 88% phosphorus (P) from wastewater using this method (Yu et al. 2018).
Electromagnetic resonance and induction enable flocculation in a wastewater treatment plant. Induction is useful for combining particles of the same charge, while electromagnetic resonance is better for combining particles with different properties. Using both together provides comprehensive flocculation across a range of particle types, sizes, shapes and surface charges.
When wastewater containing small particles and pollutants passes through an electromagnetic field, the electromagnetic waves cause the particles to resonate at the same frequency. This resonance translates the particle's kinetic energy into heat, increasing the thermal energy of the particles. The hotter particles then collide and stick together more easily, facilitating flocculation into larger flocks or aggregates.
Resonance helps concentrate the energy into the particles, enabling more effective flocculation and solid capture. By tuning the frequency of the electromagnetic waves to resonate with different types of particles, multiple rounds of flocculation targeted at different particle sizes may be achieved.
The application of electromagnetic induction also emanates small currents on the surfaces of particles, which then produces electromagnetic fields of their own. These induced fields either attract or repel nearby particles, causing them to move together into flocks. Like resonance, induction helps particles surmount energy barriers to flocculate by electromagnetically linking and bonding them.
The flocculated particles, now formed into large flocks and aggregates, settle faster or get trapped more easily by filtration systems. This results in accelerated removal of solids, improved water clarity, and advanced progress toward the discharge requirements of wastewater treatment.
Common approaches to precipitate dissolved phosphorus (P) require the addition of iron (Fe), aluminum (Al), and calcium (Ca) salts. As a drawback, it creates chemical sludge, increases toxicity, requires monitoring and maintenance, as well as, does not guarantee permanent contaminant removal (contaminants can be re-released into water).
High-intensity ultrasound by Nanoresonance causes cavitation that removes phosphorus through physical forces alone, without introducing any chemicals.
The formation and collapse of cavitation bubbles generate strong shear forces that can disrupt contaminants bound to organic or particulate matter and transform them into less soluble forms. The cavitation effectively lyses cells, erodes particles, and promotes the precipitation of contaminants.
Electromagnetic forces enhance the cavitation even more so that electromagnetic cavitation achieves the greatest degree of contaminant removal.
For example, electromagnetic cavitation using Co-Hem particles removed 98% P (Yu et al. 2020).
Out technologies provide bactericidal effects, especially against E. coli and other bacterial pathogens commonly found in wastewater. The electromagnetic energy helps to inactivate these microbes, providing an additional barrier of protection before the wastewater is discharged or reused.
Exposing membranes like microfiltration, ultrafiltration, and nanofiltration to Nanoresonance technologies increases permeability and flow rate by modifying surface charge and opening up pore structures. This enables faster processing of wastewater with higher contaminant rejection, improving both productivity and purity.
Anti-corrosion & -scaling
Exposure to electromagnetic fields promotes the formation of a protective passive layer on metal surfaces. This passive layer acts as a barrier, blocking corrosive electrolytes from reaching the underlying metal. The passive layer is stabilized through the electromagnetic treatment, increasing its effectiveness and durability.
Additionally, re-orienting water molecules or ions on a metal surface could modify surface wettability, reactivity or accessibility.
Overall, Nanoresonance provides highly effective yet sustainable corrosion management
