Ozone Reaction Kinetics for Water and Wastewater Systems
by Fernando J. Beltran

  • Covers direct and indirect ozone chemical reactions and the kinetics of ozone decomposition in water
  • Explains the determination of ozone rate coefficient (or reactivity quantification) in wastewater according to the COD level, and the effects on biodegradability
  • Discusses the ozonation kinetics in advanced oxidation processes with UV radiation, hydrogen peroxide, and catalysts
  • Provides coverage of kinetic modeling and mass-balance equations for the treatment of water and wastewater

Ozone Reaction Kinetics for Water and Wastewater Systems is a comprehensive reference that presents practical information to water treatment and wastewater treatment operators and researchers. It describes the application of kinetics to the effective evaluation, design, and implementation of ozone technology. This information will help plant operators determine whether or not ozone treatment is suitable for their facility, and help engineers and researchers design appropriate ozone treatment systems.

By presenting complete coverage of ozone kinetics in water and wastewater, this book provides researchers and practitioners with fundamentals of ozone kinetics as well as practical "how to" information.
