We have completed with the laboratory scale experiments within the project on the use of electrolytic cells for the degradation of drug (pharmaceuticals) residues in water. The use of boron-doped diamond electrodes showed high degradation efficiency. During the development phase, the electrolytic cell power supply system was upgraded with innovative solutions that enable us adjusting the voltage to the constant current and prevent calcification on the electrodes by inverting the polarity in a way that does not adversely affect the electrode surface. Innovations in the construction of the electrolytic cell prevent the formation of preferential flows and enable easy opening of the cells in the stage of manual cleaning.
