Description

During the CRP, the following expected outputs are being considered, and will be defined during the pre-CRP TM planned to be held in 2016:
- Harmonized analytical methods for characterization of the effects of ionizing radiation on water, wastewater, sludge, soil and solid wastes
- Developed remediation methods for the reuse of wastewater and sewage sludge by means of ionizing radiation
- Proposed appropriate treatment methodologies in combination with radiation techniques for abatement of pollutants

Objectives

The overall objective of this CRP is development, demonstration, and deployment (3D) of radiation technologies for the degradation of emerging organic pollutants.

Specific objectives

Acquire a deeper understanding of the fundamental aspects of radical chemistries involved in the degradation of EOPs by radiation technologies including the use of in silico modeling

Establish appropriate toxicity measurement assays to verify whether degradation of EOPs by radiation technology leads to the formation of toxic by products

Develop or refine analytical methods to detect ultra-low levels of EOPs and their radiation degradation by-products

Identify synergistic effects when radiation technologies are combined with other conventional treatment process including AOPs.

Optimize the radiation process parameters to achieve efficient degradation of target organics at varying contamination conditions

Develop standard operating procedures for the radiation processes for treating EOPs by the different radiation treatment technologies.

Perform economic feasibility analysis for radiation technology-based degradation of emerging organic pollutants.
