AOX and COD Removal from Landfill Leachates with Ozone and Radical Reactions

Sept. 18, 2012
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.
