Water treatment can include potable (drinking) water treatment, waste water treatment (such as industrial effluents, agricultural effluents,) and other applications.
Various processes are running and are also at improvement/development stages. The processes can be divided into physical/chemical processes such as coagulation, adsorption, filtration, membrane filtration, centrifugation, oxidation, ion-exchange, electro-dialysis, etc. and bio-chemical processes such as activated sludge.
Combined processes and Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) may realize more efficient and cost effective processes. This project targets a simultaneous application of different methods to treat dilute but having toxic potential organics in water.
