Advanced oxidation systems using hydrogen peroxide (peroxide) and ultraviolet (UV) light are designed to inject hydrogen peroxide in controlled ratios to the water, then mixing the peroxide, and exposing the water and peroxide solution to UV radiation to form hydroxyl radicals (•OH). Peroxide and hydroxyl radicals are strong oxidizing agents capable of oxidizing 1,4-dioxane and several volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The advanced oxidation process is suitable for groundwater remediation with pump-and-treat, water treatment, and industrial wastewater treatment. Treatment with UV/Peroxide may offer technical advantages over ozone based treatment systems.
