Design of an Advanced Oxidation Process for the Decomposition of PFAA
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesisAlternative title
Utformning av en avancerad oxidationsprocess för nedbrytning av PFAS (Swedish)
The process of designing, constructing, and evaluating a novel catalyzed AOP (Advanced oxidation process) for decomposition of PFAAs (Perfluorinated alkyl acids) is covered in this master thesis study. A complete water treatment system with the capacity of treating polluted water was designed and constructed. Various parameters were investigated regarding the potential of the process to degrade PFAAs. A significant reduction of PFOS (perfluorooctanesulfonic acid) level (80 %) was achieved during the trial. Further studies are required to examine the main degradation mechanisms to improve the process.
