Atlantium Technologies study shows potential for invasive species control

The use of unique UV technology called “Hydro Optic Disinfection” (HOD) has shown promising results in controlling zebra and quagga mussel populations on dams and hydroelectric power projects, according to a new white paper published by Atlantium Technologies.

The study — available for free download via HydroWorld.com — details Atlantium Technologies’ use of its HOD MP-UV system to help control invasive aquatic species and biofouling.

Atlantium Technolgies said its HOD MP-UV system differs from many conventional chemical treatment options currently used in that it is environmentally-friendly, non-corrosive and does not require a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.

The white paper examines the results of an extensive study using Atlantium’s system along the Lower Colorado River in 2012, showing HOD MP-UV’s potential.
