Development of a continuous measuring method for adsordable organically bound halogens AOX in waters

Objective

AOX Adsorbable Organically bound Halogens are considered to be a very dangerous group of materials in that they produce toxic mutagenic and carcinogenic effects and some of them have a strong bioaccumulation property in fat containing tissues. However, to date no fast automatic device for the monitoring of AOX exists in the market. The present project aims to develop a monitoring technology to keep track of the concentration of adsordable AOX present in water streams.

Common sources of AOX are industrial processes urban and agricultural activities human activities and even natural phenomena Currently available methods to measure the AOX components in water involve arduous laboratory methods which prove slow and entail difficult and complex procedures Hence such measurement needs to be carried out in specialised laboratories by trained staff rendering any automatic and or continuous measurement of AOX simply unfeasible and drastically reducing the number of analysis performed.
