Description:

The Matrix Technology involves the exposure of titanium dioxide (Ti02) particles to ultraviolet light (UV). The Ti02 is activated by UV light to produce high oxidizing hydroxyl radicals. Maxtrix also uses hydrogen peroxide (H202) and ozone (03) to enhance the treatment systems performance. Target organic compounds are either mineralized or broken down into low molecular weight compounds, primarily by hydroxyl radicals. The Matrix Technology is applicable for treatment of VOCs, semivolatile organic compounds, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, and pesticides in liquid wastes, including groundwater, wastewater, landfill leachate, and drinking water.
