INTEGRATION OF FILTRATION AND ADVANCED OXIDATION: DEVELOPMENT OF A MEMBRANE LIQUID-PHASE PLASMA REACTOR
Bellona, C., E. Dickenson, T.M. Holsen, and S. Mededovic-Thagard.
U.S. EPA, National Center for Environmental Research, 2018

Under EPA Grant Number R835332, researchers from Clarkson University and the Southern Nevada Water Authority collaborated to engineer, develop, and demonstrate an integrated process comprising membrane technology and electrical discharge plasma generated via a novel reticulated vitreous carbon electrode material. EPA funded the project team from August 16, 2012, through August 15, 2017, as it worked to develop a scalable, robust technology that requires minimal chemical input, has a small footprint, and achieves finished water of high quality. Plasma was very effective for the degradation of perfluorinated compounds, particularly within the team's optimized reactor configuration. Links to the abstracts of the 19 papers developed during this project are available at https://cfpub.epa.gov/ncer_abstracts/index.cfm/fuseaction/display.abstractDetail/abstract/9729/report/2016.
