Advanced Oxidation Processes

This session welcomes contributions related to the following topics: 


  • Ozone-based oxidation processes 

  • UV/H2O2 and UV/persulfate oxidation processes 

  • Heterogeneous Semiconductor photocatalysis 

  • Fenton, photo-Fenton and related oxidation processes 

  • Electrochemical oxidation processes  

  • Application of nano-materials in AOPs 

  • AOPs for the degradation of contaminants of emerging concern in water and wastewater 

  • AOPs for the degradation of pollutants in the gas phase (i.e. NOx, VOCs, odor compounds, etc.)   

  • AOPs for the disinfection of water and wastewater  

  • AOPs in industrial applications  

  • Generation of transformation products, toxicity evaluation and mechanisms of destruction of contaminants and pollutants during the application of AOPs
