  • New Green Methodology for Measuring Total Organic Carbon (TOC) — Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO)

    Analyzing the total organic carbon (TOC) content of industrial wastewater, process influent and effluent water, and environmental water samples can be very challenging. These aggressive sample matrices often clog or damage TOC analyzers that use the combustion method. This can result in expensive preventive maintenance and excessive non-regenerative waste. To address these critical issues, GE ...
