A new stage concept was proposed for removal of compounds like dioxin and of endocrino-disrupting chemicals from effluents of wastewater, by using the catalytic oxidation process on hydrophobic Pt-catalysts. By the implementation of this new stage concept, the purified effluents could be discharged into rivers, lagoons or comeback for water recycling, without disturbing of ecosystem.
