AOP (ADVANCED OXIDATION PROCESS) Hydroxyl radicals, the ultimate oxidant for eliminating organic pollutants, are created through AOP (Advanced Oxidation Process) practices, using three proven treatment technologies (Ozone, UV, Hydrogen Peroxide).
AOP is an aqueous phase oxidation method consisting of highly reactive species used in the oxidative destruction of target pollutants. AOP creates a more powerful and less selective secondary oxidant, hydroxyl radicals, in the water. This secondary oxidant can cause the
oxidation of most organic compounds until they are fully mineralized as carbon dioxide and water. The hydroxyl radical has a much higher oxidation potential than ozone or hydrogen peroxide, which leads to a smaller contact time and footprint.
