Membrane filtration and advanced oxidation

Start date: Sep 14th, 2016
Finish date: --

Pilot scale test of membrane filtration combined with advanced oxidation processes as an alternative to traditional treatment on activated carbon.

Phase 1 is a literature study to determine promising combinations of membranes and contaminants. Phase 2 is a pilot scale test of the  ability of the membranes to retain dissolved contaminants. Phase 3 is a pliot scale test of the ability of different advanced oxidation processes to treat the concentrated retentate.

2018-2019 Phase 2 was in operation at the Innovation Garage with unpromising results concerning chlorinated solvents.

In 2020 Phase 2 will be carried out in Region Zealand targeting different pesticides.

Project type: Operation

Project target: Groundwater
