Reactor Turns Sludge into Pure Water

Lockett Wood, CEO and President of Longmont-based Avivid Water Technology, says that after nearly a decade of development, he's discovered a safe way to purify water using a process to the known as electrocoagulation

750 million people worldwide don't have access to clean water. That's more than twice the population of the United States.

"It's pretty nasty looking," said Lockett Wood PhD, CEO & President of Longmont-based Avivid Water Technology, looking at a jar of brown sludge.

Wood says that after nearly a decade of development, he's discovered a safe way to purify water using a process known as electrocoagulation.

Wood starts by pouring dirty water into his reactor.

The reaction takes just a few minutes and then the water separates from the sludge.

Wood says it's so effective, it’s even good enough to drink.

The little machine can process 1,000 gallons of very contaminated water every day and Wood boasts that it can be built to any scale in the future.
