Abstract

Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are promising technologies to mineralize organic pollutants and reduce chemical oxygen demand (COD) from water effluents. Unfortunately, treatment of real industrial effluents is barely reported in literature and actual application is rare. One of the technology transfer limitations is associated to the identification of the most suitable stage for AOPs implementation in existing water treatment facilities of industry manufacturers. Here, we report a complete study where the most suitable stage for Fenton treatment implementation for a screw manufacture industry water treatment facility is identified. Actual wastewater effluent was collected, characterized and treated by means of Fluidized-bed Fenton (FBF) treatment to reduce COD levels. Fenton's reagents feeding mode is evaluated to better understand influence on continuous flow operational FBF performance and efficiency.
