AOP UV System
Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP): are chemical treatment methods to reduce organic and inorganic components from water via oxidation. AOP uses the oxidative power of the hydroxyl radical (•OH), which has the second-best oxidation potential and is the strongest oxidizer that can be used in water. The •OH radical, which can be generated by combining UV-C radiation with f.i. H2O2 or ozone can be used to reduce or eliminate micropollutants (bio-, pesticides, pharmaceutical residuals, heavy metals, etc.) in your water. The process converts the contaminant materials to a large extent into stable compounds such as water, carbon dioxide and salts, i.e. they are mineralized. In general, when used correctly, AOP can significantly reduce the COD and TOC levels in your water. In general, it is advised to apply the AOP as a final treatment step in a water treatment system so that all natural present scavengers of the hydroxyl radical are reduced as much as possible, especially bicarbonate ions (HCO3) are a strong •OH scavenger.
Possible AOP applications
Although there are many applications for AOP, three types of AOP applications provide effective treatment and are cost-effective when compared to other technologies, being:
• Micropollutant treatment;
• Treatment of taste-and-odour compounds;
• Recycled water treatment.
VGE B.V. has a modular system in its extensive portfolio which can handle any flow no matter the water quality. In some cases, depending on the pollutant, UV radiation can oxidize undesired components from your water directly without any additive, this process is called photolysis which also can be realized with our modular UV system.

Harmful pathogens are a scourge within the aquaculture industry and are often controlled with antibiotics. This has a negative impact on the water quality and thus also on the quality of the fish. As the aquaculture sector is growing every year, it becomes more important to reduce these pathogens in a sustainable way.
The answer for this is UV-C disinfection. UV-C disinfection is safe to use and protects against fish diseases without formation of any disinfection by products (DBPs) and ensures a higher survival rate. VGE Pro UV-C systems are therefore very cost-effective for the inactivation of many types of bacteria, viruses and parasites and provide healthy, clear and safe water.
