Reactor design for advanced oxidation processes

It is common practice to optimize these characteristics at laboratory scale level followed by more practical considerations to build a larger reactor able to accomplish a required performance that can be easily assembled and requires low maintenance and monitoring.

In this chapter, we describe the general principles of reactor design and list the most typical reactor configurations and performance followed by some recent advances in modeling and further developments.

Abstract

Electrochemical reactor design for oxidation processes follows similar engineering principles used for typical electrosynthesis reactors and include considerations of the components materials, electrode and cell geometries, mass transport conditions, rate of reactions, space–time yield calculations, selectivity, modeling, and energy efficiencies. It is common practice to optimize these characteristics at laboratory scale level followed by more practical considerations to build a larger reactor able to accomplish a required performance that can be easily assembled and requires low maintenance and monitoring. The scaling-up process should involve testing a variety of electrode configurations and cell designs to maximize the degradation of a particular pollutant. In this chapter, we describe the general principles of reactor design and list the most typical reactor configurations and performance followed by some recent advances in modeling and further developments.
