The use of power ultrasound for water treatment

C. Pétrier1,2    1 Université Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France2 King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia


This chapter provides an overview of the principles of sonochemistry, in which ultrasound is used for water remediation, and it connects ultrasonic cavitation in water with advanced oxidative processes (AOPs). This chapter includes comprehensive knowledge and information on the potential of the technique, with an emphasis on its advantages compared to competitive or alternate processes and a presentation of the hybrid processes that combine ultrasound action with other AOPs.
