The Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) is an innovative tertiary solution to treat industrial wastewater to meet increasingly stringent regulations on micropollutants including COD.
Genesis Water Technologies utilizes our EOX Electro oxidation systems and our Genclean AOP chemical feed systems for these applications. These systems utilize hydroxyl radicals and reactive oxygen species containing considerable oxidation potential to effectively react with numerous contaminants including non-biodegradable micro pollutants, trace metals, organics, pharmaceutical residues, and pathogens. These generated hydroxyl radical and reactive oxygen molecules can react with contaminants in quick reaction times, requiring less treatment contact time and a smaller system footprint in the client’s facility.
The rate of oxidation of a target micro pollutant is dependent on specific aspects: concentration of hydroxyl radicals and reactive oxygen species, concentration of the target pollutant and concentration of interfering radical scavenger compounds such as bicarbonates, elevated alkalinity and chlorides.
Additional parameters to consider in this process include the analysis of temperature, pH, the type of pollutant targeted, and presence of ions in source water.
The selection of AOP technologies shall also consider the potential possibility of byproduct formation as a result of the oxidation process. AOP technologies have drawbacks and are not appropriate for all types of source water conditions without post treatment polishing systems, therefore appropriate selection is crucial.
