  • Optimisation of Organic Compound Removal in Artificial Recharge Systems by Redox control and Enhanced Oxidation (OXIRED 2)

    Optimisation of organic compound removal in artificial recharge systems by redox control and enhanced oxidation

    Subsurface passage as utilised during river bank filtration and artificial groundwater recharge has been proven to be an effective barrier for multiple substances present in surface waters during drinking water production. Additionally it is widely used as polishing step after wastewater treatment. However, there are limitations concerning the removal of DOC and…
