Electrochemical Processes for Groundwater and Surface Water Treatment

Prinicple Investigators: Prof. Madjid MohseniProf. David Wilkinson (UBC); Prof. Benoit Barbeau, École Polytechnique de Montréal.

  1. Design and evaluate pilot-scale electrocoagulation process for NOM and heavy metal removal, energy intensity and floc/particulate separation.
  2. Investigate scale-up potentials of in-situ electrosynthesis of H2O2 for advanced water treatment applications.
  3. Develop a novel electrochemical method for generating ferrate species (an electroferrator) for oxidation and disinfection processes.
