Chemical Oxidation Technology : The Fenton Family

Chemical Oxidation Technology : The Fenton Family
Introduction

Fenton process is an advanced oxidation process (AOP) that Fenton's reagent (H2O2/ Fe2+) is used to generate OH radical for chemical oxidations. ITRI's Fenton family technologies include two major types of Fenton reactor, Fered-Fenton and FBR-Fenton. Fered-Fenton is applied to the pre-treatment of high strength wastewater, while FBR-Fenton is to treat residual refractory compounds for the polishing of wastewater.
