A Refined Process for Maximum Sterilization

Water Decontamination is intended to sterilize target liquid wastes such as sewage, agricultural wastes, leachates, or any effluent where eliminating pathogens, pharmaceuticals, harmful metals and other contaminants can improve the environmental impact of waste waters.


In this mode, the contaminated wastewater is passed through the arc quickly, and normally only 1-2 times.

The end objective is not gasification, but modest amounts of gas are produced as a byproduct of the process.

Commercial applications:
water reclamation, treatment of agricultural, pharmaceutical, industrial, and manufacturing wastes.

The primary purpose of this process is to efficiently achieve the maximum decontamination effect.

Fuels produced in this operating mode can be used as a cost offset for power generation or to enhance the decontamination process.

Fluid Processing

In Water Decontamination Mode, Taronis’ sterilization units can process the following fluids:

Agricultural waste
Medical waste
Oil-based liquids*
Industrial waste liquids*

* Certain Oil and Industrial Waste Liquids Require Further Testing or Mixing with Water or other Liquids to Process.

Our Technology Provides Superior Fluid Water Decontamination

Our fluid decontamination and sterilization technology is superior to incumbent solutions.


Our technology generates a combination of electric current, high heat, ultraviolet light, and ozone. These powerful sterilizers have a proven ability to eliminate virtually all living organisms.


Our 2018 USDA funded test results show 99.9% ability to eliminate E. coli, fecal coliform, other EPA and USDA regulated pathogens. Our technology is proven to break down pharmaceuticals and PCBs. Demonstrable reduction in NPK levels. We are conducting tests now to verify we can also eliminate cyanobacteria commonly known as blue-green algae.


Our water decontamination unit has a compact physical footprint, can easily fit in a one-car garage bay. Depending on the volume of waste to process, residence time can be as little as a few hours. Our unit is highly mobile and flexible configuration options for rural applications. This process has little impact on the nutritional value of the source materials.
