  • Applications of ozone for modern wastewater treatment

    Modern Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) efficiently eliminate organic pollution down to Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Suspended Solids (SS) values of less than 30 mg/l. However, these treated effluents still contain biologically Persistent Organic Matter (POM), characterised by a Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) of between 50 and more than 100 mg/l. Industrial WWTP effluents have COD ...

  • Ozone as a Disinfecting Agent in The Reuse Of Wastewater

    More and more countries are taking measures to reuse wastewater. This has been prompted by the ever decreasing availability of good quality raw water and the increasing cost of producing potable water. Disinfection is a major treatment step in the direct reuse of reclaimed wastewater to ensure environmental and public health protection. “Disinfection is the destruction, inactivation or removal of ...

  • Out In the Ozone the Return of Ozone and the Hydroxyl Radical to Wastewater Disinfection

    The City of Phoenix is investigating the use of various disinfection technologies for its 91st Avenue wastewater treatment facility. Key to this investigation is the implementation of a UV system to meet State of Arizona, Class A+ disinfection requirements. During this evaluation, the range of alternatives was expanded to include ozonation and other advanced oxidation processes (AOP), to examine ...

  • Removal of Congo red from textile wastewater by ozonation

    Congo red, which has a complex molecular structure with various diazo aromatic groups, is widely used in textile industry as an anionic dye. The purpose of this study was to investigate the degradation of Congo red in laboratory solution which had the chemical properties of the rinse waters of textile manufacturing dye-houses and the samples ...

  • Suitability of ozone pre-treatment for amoxicillin wastewater

    This study deals with the ozonation of amoxicillin in real pharmaceutical wastewater and its efficacy as a pre-treatment, prior to biological degradation by a mixed culture of bacteria in a sequencing batch reactor (SBR). An ozone utilization of 0.27 g/g-COD (chemical oxygen demand) lowered the pH of the wastewater to 6.6, reduced the specific ultraviolet absorption by 43% and increased ...

  • Ozonation Pretreatment to MIEX® Process

    The MIEX®DOC process is a proven technology for the removal of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from potable and wastewater sources. Occasionally, waters are found to contain an intractable fraction of organic carbon and in such instances, the performance of the MIEX®DOC technology can be enhanced with ozonation. Ozonation is believed to be effective in partially oxidizing organic material and ...

  • Limitations of the removal of cyanide from coking wastewater by ozonation and by the hydrogen peroxide-ozone process

    The purpose of this study is to compare the efficiency of ozonation and the hydrogen peroxide–ozone process for the removal of cyanide from coking wastewater. The most efficient oxidation process is combined with coagulation–flocculation–decantation and lime–soda ash softening pretreatments. The oxidation in aqueous solution and industrial wastewater (at pH 9.5–12.3) by O3 was carried out ...

  • Toxicity reduction and biodegradability enhancement of cork processing wastewaters by ozonation

    Biodegradability enhancement and detoxification of cork boiling wastewater (CBW) are required for the successful implementation of biological treatment options. We studied the possibility of achieving these goals through ozonation pre-treatment by experimenting on the effect of ozone dose and pH. The CBW used had a pH of 5.81, a chemical oxygen demand (COD) of 1,865 mg L−1, a biochemical ...

  • Decreased UV absorbance as an indicator of micropollutant removal efficiency in wastewater treated with ozone

    Ozone transforms various organic compounds that absorb light within the UV and visible spectra. UV absorbance can therefore be used to detect the transformation of chemicals during ozonation. In wastewater, decolourisation can be observed after ozonation. This study investigates the correlation of the UV absorbance difference between the ozonation inlet and outlet and the removal efficiency of ...

  • Introduction to Ozone Injection Technology

    Untitled Document Ozone is a highly reactive chemical that has proven to be effective in destroying a wide variety of organic chemicals, including MtBE and chlorinated VOCs. ...

  • Ozone treatment for cooling towers

    Abstract The use of ozone as a maintenance treatment for cooling towers has good potential for operation and maintenance savings in the Federal secior. A small amount of ozone acts as a powerful biocide thai decreases or nearly eliminates the need to remove quantities of water from the cooling tower in order to decrease the concentration of organic and mineral solids in the system. ...

  • Effect of preozonation on wastewater reclamation by the combination of ozonation and soil aquifer treatment

    A series of column experiments and risk evaluation showed that preozonation was a better option to enhance the performance of soil aquifer treatment (SAT) than ozonation after SAT with respect to dissolved organic carbon, trace organic contaminants, and disinfection byproducts. This is a good example to show that upgrading pretreatments can be more effective than adding extra treatments after ...

  • Ozone disinfection: main parameters for process design in wastewater treatment and reuse

    Wastewater disinfection by ozone was investigated at pilot and full scale on different wastewater effluents and two types of ozone reactors. It was demonstrated that water quality and, in particular, suspended solids and organic content strongly influence the required ozone dose for a given level of disinfection. The increase in contact time and residual ozone concentration did not improve the ...

  • A Discussion on Ozone Chemistry

    MEMBRANE AND APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT 1.0 INTRODUCTION The ability of ozone to effectively treat wastewater is dependent on the nature of contaminant in question. For example, ozone will readily remove color from a dye solution, but has much more difficulty reducing the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) of a sucrose stream. These differences in ozone effectiveness are ...

  • Ozone-based reclamation of an STP effluent

    The system ozone and hydrogen peroxide was used to reclaim wastewater from the secondary clarifier from a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid-Spain). The assays were performed by bubbling a gas mixture of oxygen and ozone, with ~24 g Nm-3 of ozone concentration, through a volume of wastewater samples for 20 minutes at 25°C . The removal of dissolved ...
