Revolutionary system to Monitor, Predict and Control Cyanobacteria with the smart MPC-Buoy

March 14, 2013

A European consortium develops a novel technology to monitor and control harmful algae blooms.

ZOETERMEER, The Netherlands, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — The patented LG Sonic MPC ensures fast and efficient algae control by combining online water quality monitoring, telemetering and ultrasonic technologies to provide the state-of-the-art treatment against algae and cyanobacteria in ponds, lakes and dams.

Under the 7th framework program from the European Commission, LG Sound has joined forces with several European universities and SME. With a total budget of 1,3 million euro, the consortium developed an innovative, environmentally friendly solution for harmful algae blooms in lakes and water reservoirs.

As algae types change during seasons, the ultrasonic treatment needs to be adjusted accordingly. To remain highest efficiency, the new interactive algae control product includes outstanding features with compatible performances.

Starting with the monitoring option, the LG Sonic MPC provides a complete overview of the water quality by measuring essential parameters such as Chlorophyll a, Phycocyanin, Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), pH, Redox and Temperature.

The collected data is communicated real-time by radio, 3G or GPRS telemetry to the web based MPC-View software. The software displays the collected data in charts and graphs so the water quality can be clearly evaluated.

Based on these data, an adequate ultrasonic program is determined to efficiently target the present algae. 3 LG Sonic® ultrasonic transmitters assure a complete sound coverage of 360° in a range of 500 meter (1650 ft) diameter. By working with precise ultrasonic programs, ultrasonic treatment is faster and becomes more efficient, targeting directly what is present in the water. Besides that, changing an ultrasonic program prevents that algae become resistant to a spectrum of ultrasound and thus untreatable.

Finally, thanks to the LG Sonic® MPC-Buoy and the interactive communication between the LG Sonic®, Sensors and the Web Server, any harmful algae and cyanobacteria blooms can be predicted a few days ahead.

LG Sound’s unique product, the LG Sonic MPC-Buoy is now available to users anywhere around the world. Proud of their latest innovation, water expert of LG Sound Ing.Lisa Brand announces: “We have been working on this product tirelessly and finally we are proud to announce the ultimate smart cyanobacteria and algae control unit, the LG Sonic® MPC-Buoy.This interactive stand-alone unit offers our clients to be in complete control over their algae treatment from their office or home. With the revolutionary options of the MPC-Buoy, we already feel one step ahead in the water treatment world”

By now, several of these LG Sonic units have been installed worldwide and have been monitored by universities to assess their environmental impact. Installation of LG Sonic has clearly shown a reduction in algae concentration. Because during treatment, cells are not being ruptured, no sudden release of toxins occurs.
