Advanced Oxidation Processes: A.O.P. WhitepaperSource: DO2E
Advanced Oxidation Processing is the generation and implementation of hydroxyl radicals (HO+) to oxidize contaminates in air and water. It is considered one of the most powerful oxidants readily available and it produces NO harmful by-products.
Hydroxyl Radicals are generated by 2 means. 1) By breaking down hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) by irradiating the water with germicidal U.V. or 2) combining ozone and water in the presence of germicidal U.V. (254 nanometers).
The A.O.P. we will be working with will be the 2nd process of generating Hydroxyl radicals in the presence of germicidal U.V. This type of system is compact and produces a very concentrated and much more effective oxidation process when applied using DO2E Waste Water Technology.
