Diversification of water treatment systems and the reuse of water provide an opportunity to satisfy growing water demands. Electrochemical systems present several promising characteristics to be implemented, and are comparable with other technologies in cost and efficiency. The performance of these systems can be substantially improved by the use of a bed material inside the reactor.

The aim of this project is to develop a water treatment system based on adsorption and electrochemical oxidation for the treatment of greywater. Combination of both processes have demonstrated a better performance than their operation individually and superposed.
