Quantitative models of the reaction kinetics are essential for the design and optimization of chemical processes wherein reactions occur. This paper provides an overview of research into the development of such models for supercritical water oxidation processes. We illustrate two different, but complementary approaches. One approach is empirical, and it is the traditional engineering kinetics approach. The second approach is fundamental, and it is based on the governing mechanism and elementary reaction steps. The advantages and disadvantages of the two approaches are also discussed.
