The Air Force and other government and private entities must safely dispose of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Waste (AFFF).The waste is problematic due to a high fluorine content.The thermal decomposition of AFFF by supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) was accomplished in a continuous flow reactor during Phase I demonstrating >99% AFFF conversion efficiency.Phase II will build on the bench-scale work by characterizing the decomposition reaction kinetics in order to develop design equations for scaling the process. Additional work focuses on alternative reactor designs to minimize technical problems related to the corrosive environment produced by SCWO. These tasks will be completed in conjunction with the overall effort directed towards the design, construction and operation of a pilot scale system.
