Description:
Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) are processes that rely on the generation of radical species for degrading water contaminants. These types of processes are applied for treating groundwaters and wastewaters as well as drinking water disinfection. The objectives of the proposed session include: (1) Inform communities on the fundamental principles of radical generation for water treatment. (2) Compare the economics and performance of AOPs with conventional water treatment technologies. (3) Describe the latest developments and applications of AOPs for water treatment (i.e., sulfate-based radicals, sonication, cold plasma techniques, UV and/or other catalyst-assisted AOP, etc.) (4) Explain the advantages, disadvantages, and engineering challenges of the in-situ application of AOPs for groundwater treatment. Both applied and fundamental contributions on the above described topics (or closely related ones) are welcomed
