atg Evoqua has recently developed a chemical-free Advanced Oxidation Process (A.O.P.) known as Keratox for the treatment and removal of organic and chemical contaminants from municipal drinking water and wastewater.
Utilising atg Evoqua’s UV treatment systems in combination with a unique and patented Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) catalyst, the Keratox advanced oxidation solution can be used to target and remove contaminants in order to meet regulations such as the EU Priority Substances Directive (2013/39/EC), a new ‘daughter directive’ of the widely established Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) that will affect all European member states.
The Priority Substances Directive, and other associated watch lists for chemicals of priority concern will require up to 45 micro-pollutants such as Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH’s), Endocrine Disruptor Compounds (EDC’s), Alkylphenol’s and trace pesticides and pharmaceuticals to be removed from effluent wastewater streams before discharge into the environment. In addition, some municipal drinking water suppliers are also looking at implementing Advanced Oxidation Processes for contamination removal before potable drinking water enters their municipal water network.
