Over a period of three years the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) sponsored a cooperation between the Institut fuer Kern- und Energietechnik (IKET) of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH (FZK) and the Wehrle-Werk AG, Emmendingen. The common aim is the advancement to readiness for marketing of the facility which was developed in the IKET. The concept of the SUWOX facility for the destruction of not bio-degradable pollutants in supercritical water is based on a corrosion resistant double-wall reactor the material of which is adapted to the respective compounds of the waste water, and a system pressure of 70 MPa to obtain high fluid densities which lead to high salt solubility. After proof of the successful destruction of pollutants in industrial waste water the investigations concentrated on the development of an application-oriented plant. This report reviews the concept, the steps of development for application and the results obtained. Based on these results gained in a technological plant processing costs to be expected for the disposal of waste water containing biocides on an industrial pilot plant scale are reported.
