    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Ozonation can be a suitable technique for the pre-treatment of wastewater containing low concentrations of toxic or non-biodegradable compounds that cannot be treated with satisfactory results when only the traditional, less expensive biological techniques are applied. In this case, the oxidation process has to be made as efficient as possible, in order to reduce the costs of ozone addition and energy use. An efficient oxidation process with ozone can be obtained by focusing the oxidation with ozone selectively on the direct oxidation of toxic pollutants and to minimize ozone losses due to the decay of ozone in water. Supported by data of the rate constants of the reactions involved, a mathematical model was developed. It quantifies the ozone consumption by the process, and the share of ozone consumption by undesired side reactions, in several different reactor systems
Ozonation can be a suitable technique for the pre-treatment of wastewater containing low concentrations of toxic or non-biodegradable compounds that cannot be treated with satisfactory results when only the traditional; less expensive biological techniques are applied. In this case, the oxidation process has to be made as efficient as possible, in order to reduce the costs of ozone addition and energy use. An efficient oxidation process with ozone can be obtained by focusing the oxidation with ozone selectively on the direct oxidation of toxic pollutants and to minimize ozone-losses due to the decay of ozone. in water. Supported by data of the rate constants of the reactions involved, a mathematical model was developed. It quantifies the ozone consumption by the process, and the share of ozone consumption by undesired side reactions, in several different reactor systems. Results obtained with this model indicate that a plug flow reactor (PFR) will be the most efficient design for the oxidation reactor. As an alternative, the cascaded tank reactor system (CTR), in which the ozone feed may be realized with less practical problems, might be considered: The traditional continuous flow stirred tank reactor (CFSTR) is shown to be the least efficient system.
