Thamer A. Albahkali, the Director of the Intellectual Property and Technology Licensing (IPTL) program, explained that the present invention is about to provide a method for decomposing halogenated organic compounds which overcomes the drawbacks of the prior art. Particularly, a method shall be provided in which the halogenated organic compound is decomposed by the reaction with superoxide ions in a non-ammonium salt based deep eutectic solvent.
Further, He informed thermal oxidation is a standard method of destroying hazardous chemicals. Destructive oxidation is done in high-efficiency thermal incinerators or in cement kilns but the potential for emission of dioxins makes regulations on these operations very strict.
