Abstract
This work addresses the optimization of the batch process recipe of an Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) aimed at reducing paracetamol (PCT) and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) concentrations from a given effluent. The kinetic model by Cabrera Reina et al. (2012) is adapted to model the treatment, the problem is next formulated as a dynamic optimization problem and dosage of hydrogen peroxide is addressed by means of a piecewise constant strategy, which is compared with other dosage protocols.
