Impact/Purpose:

information

Description:

The process developed by Energy and Environmental Engineering, Incorporated, is designed to photochemically oxidize organic compounds in wastewater by applying ultraviolet radiation using an Excimer laser. The photochemical reactor can destroy low to moderate concentrations of organics in water. The energy is sufficient to fragment the bonds of organic compounds, and the radiation is not absorbed to any significant extent by the water molecules in the solution. The process is envisioned as a final treatment step to reduce organic contamination in ground water and industrial wastewaters to acceptable limits.
