ACCENT AND TRADITIONAL SOLUTIONS


A number of traditional aqueous effluent treatment technology options exist for the removal of problem organics.

  • Ozone or hydrogen peroxide treatment
  • Thermal and catalytic incineration
  • Wet air oxidation
  • Biological treatment
  • Fentons catalysed peroxide reaction


Each has its own particular strengths and weaknesses, but choosing the correct technology is not always easy. The starting point should always be to analyze and measure the contents of the stream to be treated. This, together with the volume and degree of treatment required, will have a profound effect on the choice of technology.
