Advanced Oxidation processes
Advanced oxidation processes (AOPS), including ozone, UV radiation, Fenton processes, photocatalysis, among others, are chemical or physico-chemical (e.g. UV radiation) wastewater treatment processes that have in common the generation of hydroxyl radicals in sufficient quantity to produce the chemical transformation of contaminants. The hydroxyl radical (OH) is a powerful, non-selective chemical oxidant, which acts very rapidly with most organic compounds to form stable, oxidized products, and producing the final mineralization of organic material into CO2, water and inorganic compounds. Moreover these processes oxidize inorganic materials reducing in some cases its toxicity.
Information on the oxidation process technology can be found on the results page.
