Research area

  • Mainly engaged in advanced treatment of wastewater research and engineering applications. The developed technologies include chemical oxidation (ozone catalytic oxidation and Fenton oxidation) and biological aerated filter coupling process, nitrosation of high ammonia nitrogen wastewater and anaerobic ammonia oxidation coupling denitrification process.

  • Chemical oxidation and biological aerated filter coupling technology, which was first developed and developed in 2005, has been applied on a large scale under the condition of abundant research foundation. It has been used in textile printing and dyeing, landfill leachate, leather, petrochemical, chemical storage terminal and other industrial wastewater advanced treatment and reuse, and has presided over the construction of a number of industrial wastewater treatment to quasi-surface 4 demonstration projects.

  • In recent years, a new stable nitrification method for ammonia nitrogen wastewater has been developed, so as to realize short-range nitrification and denitrification, and anammox process has been developed in engineering. The developed energy-saving and low-carbon biological denitrification process has been successfully applied to the treatment of printing and dyeing mercerized high ammonia nitrogen wastewater, iron oxide red high ammonia nitrogen wastewater treatment, garbage leachate high ammonia nitrogen wastewater treatment and other high ammonia nitrogen wastewater treatment, and realize engineering application.
