LG Sonic invited to provide seminar about algae control during water quality conference in Portland, USA.

LG Sonic is invited to present and exhibit during the Water Quality Technology Conference in Portland, Oregon, USA. This conference provides a practical forum for a wide range of water technology professionals to exchange the latest research and information. At the exhibition, LG Sonic will showcase its latest technologies to control algal blooms in lakes and reservoirs.

Cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, cause problems when blooming in lakes and water reservoirs, such as health issues, fish deaths, and odor problems. Based on a European Research project, LG Sonic developed an environmentally friendly method to selectively control algae in freshwater lakes and reservoirs called the MPC-Buoy (Monitor, Predict, Control). The MPC-Buoy is a floating solar-powered platform that emits specific to target the algae present. In 2014, American Water, America’s largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility company, installed four buoys in a drinking water reservoir. An extensive study indicated that the ultrasonic system resulted in an improvement in the water quality and a reduction of chemical consumption by more than 20%.
