Advanced Oxidation

Our AOP systems are mainly designed for use on effluent treatment plants

With the large diameter chamber, the waste water units are designed to treat water quality of around 30/30 BOD/TSS 

Advanox™; Advanced Oxidation with UV-C light and hydrogen peroxide. Pure removal without worries.

What do you do when you really need to get rid of your contaminants? How do you remove harmful medicines, pesticides and other micro pollutants from your water without breaking the bank? Which process gives you the flexibility and the capability to tune your treatment on-the-fly to changes in water quality or treatment goal?

The answer is; advanced oxidation (AOP/AOT). With this technology UV-C light is used from the most efficient low pressure lamps available as a catalyst to make powerful hydroxyl-radicals from hydrogen peroxide or other oxidants. These powerful radicals oxidise every organic contaminant they can find; a process that takes milliseconds and turns target substances into harmless residues like water and carbon dioxide with minimal by-products. The contaminants are literally broken down and there is no concentrate stream to deal with like membrane processes, activated carbon filled with contaminants or the risk for harmful bromate/chromate with application of ozone. Add to this an inherently low need for maintenance, small footprint and a robust process and it is clear this technology creates opportunities.

Depending on your need and wishes this technology can be applied as a batch process with a CSTR (Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor) or in a continuous process with a PFR (Plug Flow Reactor). The systems developed by Van Remmen are designed from the ground up specifically for advanced oxidation with the newest CFD technologies (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and latest scientific insights (Wetsus, KWR). This pragmatic approach rooted in a firm scientific base proves itself continuously in diverse researches and applications:
• For the removal of plant protection products from greenhouse wastewater (WUR, KWR, CEW)
• For the removal of micro pollutants from waste water treatment plant effluent (KWR)
• For the removal of cyanide from industrial wastewater (Antea, Lanxess, Tata)
• For the removal of medicine residues from drinking water (KWR, Wetsus)

We invite you to challenge us with your questions, we are eager to find a solution with you. Through the combination of Van Remmens specific knowledge of AOP we know we are ready for you!
