Abstract

A model was developed to predict the degradation of trichloroethylene (TCE) in both the aqueous and non-aqueous phases using droplet mass transfer correlations and Fenton reaction kinetics. In addition to using this chelate in the solution phase for enhanced contaminant degradation, it can be incorporated either into a polymer matrix. In-situ polymerization of polyacrylic acid inside the pores of a polyvinylidene fluoride membrane for Fe(II) capture was performed. By convectively passing hydrogen peroxide through the membrane, hydroxyl radicals were generated, which can be used for contaminant degradation. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (Montreal, Quebec, Canada 8/23-27/2009).
