Abstract: This study deals with the optimization of photochemical reactors for advanced oxidationprocesses (AOPs). The optimization consists of minimizing the average reactor outlet concentrationof an organic pollutant in a water flow by optimizing the reactor geometry and is based onmathematical reactor models. Two tubular reactor configurations are studied: a single- and a multilampreactor. For given values of the reactor volume, the flow of the water to be treated and theradiation power of the UV-lamps, it has been shown that (i) an optimal reactor geometry (for bothreactor configurations) exists and (ii) an optimal position of the lamps in the multi-lamp reactorexists.
