Micropollutant removal is one of the primary environmental and public health threats directly related to water resources. After several years of research, piloting and first full-scale testing, ozone has emerged as a cost-effective and efficient micropollutant removal solution that can protect the global community from this growing challenge.
Ozone is the strongest practical oxidant available for water treatment processes. The versatile chemical oxidation and disinfection characteristics of ozone have been used for many different processes in connection with water treatment. Depending on the organic load and the chemistry of the leachate, the ozone oxidation process can be adopted to reduce stable chlorinated organic compounds which form the AOX in leachates from domestic landfills.
