Electro Chemical Oxidation (EO)

In the project an Electro Chemical Oxidation (EO) method based on doped diamond electrodes will be used. Doped diamond electrodes have a unique property to decompose even very persistent chemicals like PFAS due to an extremely high electro chemical potential. Electrochemical oxidation with boron doped diamond electrodes also has several extra benefits like disinfection, oxidation of other molecules like pharmaceutical, pesticides and other Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) problems.
