The Advanox™ process – A partnership between Nouryon and Van Remmen UV Technology for clean and safe water

The motivation driving us forward in the water treatment techniques called Advanced Oxidation Processes lies in the health of humans and the environment, clean water, and a happy earth.

There is a growing concern regarding pharmaceuticals and other persistent micropollutants in water. The effects we have seen so far includes the feminization of and behavior changes in fish as well as a large drop in male fertility. There is also the increasing development and risk of antibiotic resistance which WHO says can claim more lives than cancer by 2050.

Van Remmen UV Technology and Nouryon has partnered up to combine our areas of expertise in the fight against pharmaceuticals and other micropollutants in our surface and service waters. We are working with the combination of UV-C light from Advanox™, and MicrOX™ hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

The process was tested this summer at Växjö wastewater treatment plant in Sweden for the removal of pharmaceuticals. Those results are under analysis, and the Advanox™-pilot is in the planning phase for research on mining water for the removal of flocculants.
