The report evaluates the CAV-OX cavitation oxidation process's ability to remove volatile organic compounds (VOC) present in aqueous wastes. The CAV-OX process was developed by Magnum Water Technology to destroy dissolved organic contaminants in water. The technology uses cavitation, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and hydrogen peroxide to oxidize organic compounds present in water at parts per million levels or less. The treatment technology produces no air emissions and generates no sludge or spent media that require further processing, handling, or disposal. Ideally, end products are water, carbon dioxide, halides (for example, chloride), and in some cases, organic acids. The technology uses mercury-vapor lamps to generate UV radiation.
