<emphasis role="bold">OZONE DISINFECTION</emphasis>Chlorine or chlorine compounds are the most commonly used oxidants for wastewater disinfection; however, because of the high risk of DBP formation, alternate disinfection technologies are gaining increasing attention. The common requirement for dechlorination has increased the cost of adopting chlorine as a disinfection agent. One of the more promising and more effective chemical-disinfection technologies that can reduce the concern of toxicity of disinfected water is ozonation.Ozone is a much stronger oxidant (redox potential = +0.207 V) than chlorine (redox potential = +0.136 V) and is …
