Project Title: Optimization of dechlorination to generate greener chlorinated saline sewage effluents

Applicant: Prof Xiangru ZHANG, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Total Approved Grant: $ 494,696 (ECF & WWGF: 50/50)

Duration: 1/8/2015 to 31/7/2017

Project Status/Remarks: On-going

This project aims to investigate the feasibility of reducing brominated/iodinated disinfection byproducts in chlorinated saline sewage effluents by excess dechlorination, and to optimize the excess dechlorination process to minimize the overall toxicity of chlorinated saline sewage effluents to the marine ecosystem.

Summary of the Findings/Outcomes:
To be available upon completion of the project
