From the Paper:"THE UV/HYDROGEN PEROXIDE PROCESS FOR TREATING INDUSTRIAL WASTES
Introduction. The application of ultraviolet (UV) light in combination with (as a catalyst for oxidation by) hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has been successful for the removal of fairly dilute organic solvents from groundwater and less successful for the removal of concentrated and possibly more variegated, complex wastes from the tomato-processing and distillery industries. The chemical reasons for the mixed results will be explored here, and the economic feasibility of the process will be reviewed.
The Process Train. FMC/Southland Environmental claims that FMC is the "largest producer of hydrogen peroxide in North America" (6:2). It makes its product available, in part, through a skid-mounted waste treatment unit that is ..."
