Research Progress of Advanced Oxidation Water Treatment Technology
Yongjun Sun, Deng Li, Shengbao Zhou, Kinjal J. Shah, Xuefeng Xiao
The rapid development of the industry has brought environmental deterioration. The contradiction between industrial development and environmental protection has become increasingly prominent. How to degrade various complex pollutants in water effectively is one of the keys to solve this contradiction. Reasonable treatment and disposal of pollutants to make them harmless to the environment has important practical significance. Advanced oxidation Processes (AOPs) has been gradually applied in the field of water treatment due to its advantages of high treatment efficiency, strong oxidation intensity, no secondary pollution and its capacity to degrade varieties of organic pollutants from wastewater. The oxidative degradation mechanism of AOPs was analyzed in this paper. The future development trend of the advanced oxidation technology was prospected, and the best treatment method for water treatment technologies was sought.
