  • Pilot scale testing of advanced oxidation processes for degradation of geosmin and MIB in recirculated aquaculture

    The presence of geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) in recirculated aquaculture systems has a significant negative impact on the fish production due to poor flavour quality of produced fish and increased risk of rejection by fish processers. Advanced Oxidation Processes has a high potential for removal of geosmin and MIB in water and in this study UV/H2O2 and UV/O3 has been tested in pilot scale ...
