New concepts of UV/H2O2 oxidation
Water quality may be threatened by the presence of new contaminants, increasing concentrations of
contaminants, and seasonal or diurnal variations in water sources. Advanced oxidation processes are
important barriers against organic micropollutants in drinking water treatment. Application of UV
combined with hydrogen peroxide oxidation, followed by filtration over granular activated carbon
(GAC), is a solid and flexible barrier against a broad range of organic micropollutants.
