Advanced oxidation process used at a former ordnance plant


"The overall goal of this research was to characterize the use of an advanced oxidation process (AOP) using hydrogen peroxide (H₂O₂) and ozone (O₃) known as peroxone to reduce high concentration of TCE in the groundwater being extracted by a remedial action well, Extraction Well 11 (EW-11) at the Former Nebraska Ordnance Plant (NOP) in Mead, Nebraska. The focus was to use peroxone and the pipeline as the reactor vessel to reduce the TCE contamination to levels which may be economically treated by an onsite water treatment plant with granular activated carbon (GAC) polishing"--Introduction, page 1.
