Combined Method for Degradation of Chlorophenols

G. G. Matafonova, V. B. Batoev, E. A. Sosnin, N. Christofi
Pages: 189-195


A combined method is proposed for the degradation of chlorophenols in a flow-through photoreactor using an UV XeBr* excilamp (283 nm) and the subsequent processing of the photolysis products by a destructor microorganism Bacillus cereus culture isolated from the aeration pond of the Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill. The maximum efficiency for the degradation of chlorophenols amounts to 95 %, thus the utilization of main photolysis products is achieved.
