Advanced Oxidation reactions are an extension of the process whereby UV alone is used to reduce Total Organic Carbon (TOC) through the lysing of water molecules into hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals (OH) are produced with the help of one or more primary oxidants (usually ozone or hydrogen peroxide) and ultraviolet light. This reactive species is the strongest oxidant that can be applied in water and can oxidize virtually any compound present in the water.
Multiple treatment reactions and benefits are obtained at ozonation, all at the same time. Ozone based advanced oxidation processes are important because of reactions with organic molecules that are not readily oxidized by ozone. One challenge beverage suppliers face is the need to deliver a product free of bacteria and with extended shelf life. Because of its powerful disinfectant properties, environmentally clean treatment process and its oxidative ability, ozone has become the technology of choice among water...

In 2004-2005 LIFETECH`s laboratory worked out an advanced oxidation process (AOP) for removal of dioxins and furans (PCDD/F), chlorophenols and other contaminants from the BCD process wastewater. Consequently, our technology was installed and from April 2006 successfully used in the `Spolana-Dioxins` Project at SPOLANA a.s. in Neratovice, Czech Republic, as a part of Special Wastewater Treatment Plant. Our supply consisted of an ozone generator with the output of 5 kg O3/h at 10% w/w ozone concentration, two...
