Priority compounds

Cost effective and non-specific UV degradation of priority compounds into harmless products is the main focus of this theme. The effect of UV lamps with different emission spectra will be studied upon the (geno-)toxicological effect of the degradation products. New technologies that enhance the effectiveness and/or lower the amount of toxic byproducts of UV technology by removing interfering compounds (e.g. natural organic compounds) are developed as well.
