Advanced oxidation technologies, Biological processes, Integration of Processes
Integration of advanced oxidation technologies and other traditional wastewater treatment processes has been proven to be more effective for treating polluted sources of drinking water and industrial wastewater economically. The way of selecting the methods depends on the characteristics of the waste stream, environmental regulations, and cost. Reviewing the experimental works on this area and discussing about their effectiveness as well as modeling of their works would be helpful for deciding whether the integrated process is effective to fulfill the annually restricted legislations with lower investment. Therefore, optimization of each process should be done based on different aspects such as operation time, operating cost, and energy consumption. In this review, recent achievements, developments and trends (2003-2009) on the integration of advanced oxidation technologies and other remediation methods have been studied.
