Catalytic oxidative process for waste water contaminated with pharmaceutical products
 16 Déc 2014

A new research project will start in January 2015. Here is a short description:



Catalytic oxidative process for waste water contaminated with pharmaceutical products

Research Organisation:
Project coordinator: (1) Dr Christelle Vreuls, Celabor
Partners : (2) Dr Philippe Delahaut, CER (3) Dr Stéphanie Lambert, Pr Benoît Heinrichs ULg-LGC
 
Important use of pharmaceutical compoundsleads to global contamination of aquatic media by a large spectrum of molecules. These compounds are introduced into the environment by waste waters containing human ejecta but also via wild pharmaceutical compounds elimination, agricole streaming waters and finally sludge or manure field spreading. Pharmaceutical compounds are currently poorly removed (20 to 50%) by traditional waste water treatment plants because they are not designed for organic traceselimination. Thanks to better methods sensibility, traces of pharmaceutical were found in waste waters, source waters and drinking waters.

The aim of the TOCEP project is to determine the operational parameters of epuration technology of pharmaceutical compounds for industries benefits. This finishing chemical and physical epuration process will be inserted as final step in current industrial or hospital waste water treatment plants after traditional biological treatment. This degradation process is based on oxidative processes by UV and ozone combined with TiO2 photocatalytic.
