  • Degradation of chlorpyriphos in water by advanced oxidation processes

    The degradation of chlorpyriphos by different advanced oxidation processes such as photo-Fenton, TiO2, TiO2/H2O2, O3 and O3/H2O2 was investigated. The photo-Fenton and TiO2 processes were optimized using a solar chamber as light source. The optimum dosages of the photo-Fenton treatment were: [H2O2]=0.01 M; [Fe3 + ]=10 mg l−1; initial pH = 3.5. With these optimum conditions total degradation was ...

  • Removal of COD and colour from old-landfill leachate by Advanced Oxidation Processes

    This research aims to apply Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) using ozonation, combined O3/H2O2 and Fenton reaction for simultaneous COD and colour removal from old-landfill leachate. The efficiencies of the AOPs for both COD and colour removal could be ranked in this order; Fenton reaction > O3/H2O2 > O3. The Fenton reaction, operated at pH 3 could significantly remove more than 85% of colour ...
