Sustainable Solutions Laboratory
The Sustainable Solutions Lab focuses on drinking water quality, supply, treatment, and purification. This includes wastewater and industrial wastewater treatment using physical/chemical processes. Other areas of study include:
- Transition metal catalysis
- TiO2 photocatalysis, UV-enhanced technologies, Fenton's and Photo-Fenton's hydroxyl-radical based processes
- Other radical-based (i.e., superoxide, sulfate) destructive chemical oxidation technologies
- Membrane processes for drinking water, wastewater, and industrial water purification.
The laboratory is equipped with various technologies for the treatment and purification of water. Equipment includes:
- Novel UV/TiO2 suspension-type and immobilized-type photocatalytic reactors for water treatment
- UV and UV/H2O2 flow through photoreactors for water treatment and disinfection (Trojan UVLogic)
- Transition metal-based reactors for water treatment
- Reactors for dark and UV-enhanced oxidation of organics using the Fenton's reaction
- Reverse osmosis systems
- Membrane systems for studying the effect of fouling and biofouling in membrane processes for water purification
- Typical instrumentation and devices for determining drinking water quality and UV radiation properties.
