Environmental Contaminant Treatment Testing
Trojan’s Environmental Contaminant Treatment (ECT) Laboratory functions to support internal and external customers interested in the ultraviolet light (UV) advanced oxidation of micro-pollutants.
The ECT Laboratory analytical instrumentation includes:
- UV-Vis spectrophotometer
- Total organic carbon (TOC) analyzer
- Gas chromatograph equipped with an ion trap mass spectrometer and solid phase microextraction (SPME) autosampler
- Gas chromatograph equipped with both electron capture and flame ionization detectors
- High performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) equipped with photodiode array and conductivity detection capabilities
Among the classes of current and emerging water contaminants studied in the ECT Laboratory are taste and odor-causing compounds, pesticides, pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCP), endocrine disrupting compounds, solvents, and disinfection byproducts (DBPs). Sample matrices include raw and treated drinking water sources, surface and groundwater, and industrial process water.
