Development of materials and processes derived from recycled waste

Development of a process to build a resource circulation society by recycling waste desulfurization agent discharged from desulfurization facilities and using it as a Fenton oxidation catalyst for the treatment of hard-to-decompose wastewater.

Catalyst Manufacturing method

Iron sulfide generation reaction equation

2Fe(OH)3(s) + 3H2S(g) → Fe2S3(s) + 6H2O(g)

2FeOOH(s) + 3H2S(g) → Fe2S3(s) + 4H2O(g)

Tetracycline oxidation mechanism using sulfate radicals

Obtain a tetracycline removal rate of 95% or more using FeS/PS

It can be confirmed that it played an important role in confirming the generation of sulfate radical and OH radical and removing target contaminants using the Radical scabengers and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR)
