WIPO GREEN technology of the month

Multi-Layer Conical and High Efficiency Diffuser by Korea Technology Finance Corporation (KOTEC)

This is a system to generate uniform bubbles by triangle pitch method. It is widely used in general filtration plants, sewage and waste water disposal plants, and sewage disposal tanks and has three distinct features: (i) high rate of oxygen delivery, (ii) high agitation function, and (iii) high energy saving effect.

It can be added to existing waste water or sewage treatment systems without major renovation. This state of the art technology is being applied in Waste water and livestock excretions disposal plants (WWTP) and Terminal Disposal Plant of Sewage (STP) in different provinces of Republic of Korea.
