Project long title

Destruction of organic pollutants in water using innovative process combinations


Project description

Within the project ZEROS the suitability of the ferrodecont® process (Water purification in a fluidized bed using Fe(0)) for the decomposition of organic contaminants is tested and this process is adapted and/or combined with the following other processes:

  1. Application of ultraviolet radiation sources
  2. Application of an electrolysis cell with a diamond electrode
  3. Other processes, if applicable
