DEI – USA: Wow Technology amongst the winners of the 2016 International Projects contest

The Italian Wow Technology Group was amongst the winners of the “2016 International Projects” competition launched by the Environmental Management Division of the US Department of Energy (DoE). More specifically, the company based in Este, in the province of Padua, was one of the competition’s ten winning projects. Wow Technology thus obtained financing from the DoE for a demonstrator model at the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) relative to an innovative process for decontaminating residual radioactive fluids from nuclear power plants. The purification process patented by Wow involves single stage-distillation, not requiring the use of membranes and multiple distillation columns typically used for the evaporation of liquids. The decontamination process was found to be far more effective than conventional techniques in purifying residual radioactive liquids from radionuclides.
