Abstract

A series of experimental tests has been conducted to investigate the efficiency and the by-product generation of high dose ozonation (10 to 60 mg O3 L-1) for complete colour removal from a treated effluent with an important component of textile dyeing wastewater. The effluent is discharged into an effluent-dominated stream where no dilution takes place, and thus, the quality requirement for the effluents is particularly strict. Three contact times were adopted: 30, 60 and 90 min. Colour was measured as absorbance at 426, 558 and 660 nm wavelengths. The experimental work showed that at 50 mg L-1 colour removal was complete and at 60 mg O3 L-1 the final aldehyde concentration ranged between 0.72 and 1.02 mg L-1. Glyoxal and methylglyoxal concentrations were directly related to colour removal, whereas formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acetone and acrolein were not. Thus, the extent of colour removal can be used to predict the increase in glyoxal and methylglyoxal concentrations. As colour removal can be assessed by a simple absorbance measurement, in contrast to the analysis of specific carbonyl compounds, which is much longer and complex, the possibility of using colour removal as an indicator for predicting the toxic potential of ozone by-products for textile effluents is of great value
