Abstract
Supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) process appears to be a viable and effective technique for recovering metals and the destruction of hazardous organics in industrial chemical process wastewater. It is demonstrated that the integration of SWS and SCWO create synergetic effect. Wastewaters from Cu-plating process, acrylonitrile manufacturing plant, liquid crystal display (LCD) manufacturing plant, and terephthalic acid (TPA) manufacturing plant were treated by SCWO not only to decompose hazardous organic compounds but also to recover valuable inorganic materials. A SCWO process was developed for treating wastewater from TPA manufacturing process which contains many organic acids such as 4-carboxybenzyl aldehyde, terephthalic acid, benzaldehyde, benzoic acid, p-tolualdehyde and p-toluic acid and inorganic compound such as cobalt and manganese acetate. During the supercritical water oxidation of organic acids, nano-particles of cobalt manganese oxide in situ formed in the reactor act as an oxidation catalyst to enhance the oxidation rate of organic acid so that one can either reduce reaction temperature or shorten residence time (Figure 1). Total organic carbon of wastewater was 37,480 ppm and was reduced to 200 ppm after reaction. Co-Mn catalyst in the TPA wastewater was recovered above 99% as cobalt manganese oxide and the size of Co-Mn oxide particles was ca. 260 nm. Figure 2 shows the commercial plant for treating TPA waste residue slurry by SCWO.
Biography

Youn-Woo Lee has completed his PhD in 2004 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA. He is a Professor in the School of Chemical Sciences of Seoul National University, Korea. He is exploring the use of supercritical fluids as environmentally acceptable alternatives to conventional solvents for chemical and physical process. The current areas of application for supercritical fluids are numerous and include particle design, material synthesis, chemical reactions, separations, recycling, and cleaning. He has over 180 publications and 30 patents. He is a member of Korea National Academy of Engineering since 2014. He has been serving as an Editorial Board Member of the J. of Supercritical Fluids and J. of CO2 utilization as well as an Associate Editor of Green Materials.
