oxidation and disinfection using ozoneReading time:
oxidation and reduction provide the main properties of ozone together with the main applicable reactions that make ozone a proper oxidant :
- for disinfection;
- for the oxidation of many mineral or organic compounds;
- for the whitening of any paper pulp without leaving toxic residues behind (see paper mills and the paper pulp industries) ;
This sub-chapter is primarily devoted to describing :
- the phenomena involved and the equipment required to generate and utilise ozone ;
- the main applications of ozone of which many examples can be found in the treatment trains described in drinking water treatment, treating municipal wastewater, treatment and conditioning of industrial water and industrial processes and effluent treatment.
