Advanox is the advanced oxidation solution (AOP) by Van Remmen UV Technology. Advanox combines UV-C light with hydrogen peroxide to breakdown persistants micropollutants and pharmaceuticals effectively.
Advanced oxidation solution (AOP) from Van Remmen UV
In collaboration with research and engineering partners, we are working on expansions of the AOP concepts that are currently used for reduction of TOC, cyanide, pesticides, medicine residue, X-Ray contrast liquids, and antibiotics. Thanks to this we have the ability to design a system in such a way that it will always have an optimal result in resolving your issue.
Advanced oxidation is used to break down pesticides in irrigation water in horticulture, to break down medicine residue in waste water or in water that is processed into drinking water and reducing organic matter (TOC) in process water, waste water, or ultra pure water. Advanced oxidation purifies water and results in no “disinfection by products”, like chlorine does.
Van Remmen UV Technology and Nouryon work together and combine expertise in the fight against pharmaceutical residues and other micropollutants in our wastewater. In this effective process we work with the combination of UV-C treatment process of Advanox™ and MicrOx™ hydrogen peroxide (H²O²).
The process was tested in the summer of 2019 at the Växjö wastewater treatment plant in Sweden for the removal of pharmaceuticals.

Case: AOP – Cyanide removal
Cyanide removal as an alternative to classic wet chemical water treatment
Swimming pools are always aspiring to have as good water quality as possible for their visitors. Continuous disinfection is a well-known necessity, but part of keeping good quality is also to avoid the build-up of contaminants due to savings in water supplementation, such as bound chlorine, halogenated organics and micropollutants.
Traditionally wet chemical processes are used to remove cyanide from water streams often with hypochlorite. These processes create potentially toxic compounds (AOX) and have a low sustainability score coupled with relatively high operational cost.
Reference Case: Removal of pharmaceuticals from wastewater in Sweden
Increasing numbers of pesticides and other micro pollutants enter our water cycle with our waste water. Dutch horticulture is proven to give the highest yields per square meter couple with the lowest water and pesticide use in the entire world.
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.
Pilot research for pharmaceutical-free water with Advanox™ in Sweden
Medicine and hormone removal from wastewater
ADVANOX™ This is how it works
Waste water from households, hospitals and industry is discharged into the sewer system or environment.
If this water is treated many of the (micro)pollutants are not removed and the biology used may even become resistant. Because of this we see these compounds increase in the environment, but also the resistance of pathogens to them.
Advanox sanitises the water killing resistant organisms and removes pharmaceuticals, pesticides and other substances of (high) concern.
Now the water can be discharges freely and safely, because (micro)pollutants are removed, without ecological impact for a sustainable business and water cycle.
