Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) for wastewater treatment are gaining more importance since biological treatment plants are often not sufficient for highly contaminated or toxic wastewaters. In order to find out the most efficient and cheap AOP, investigations were concentrated on methods that can use sunlight. The systems TiO2/UV, Fe2+/H2O2/UV (Photo-Fenton reaction), Fe2+/O2/UV and Fe2+/O3/UV were compared. Since the Photo-Fenton system was the most effective, pilot plant experiments with industrial wastewaters and sunlight experiments were carried out. Finally a rough cost estimate shows that Photo-Fenton treatment with sunlight is far cheaper than other available AOPs, namely ozonization.
