Four advanced oxidation processes (UV/TiO(2), UV/IO(4)(-), UV/S(2)O(8)(2-), and UV/H(2)O(2)) were tested for their ability to mineralize naphthenic acids to inorganic carbon in a model oil sands process water containing high dissolved and suspended solids at pH values ranging from 8 to 12. A medium pressure mercury (Hg) lamp was used, and a Quartz immersion well surrounded the lamp. The treatment goal of 5mg/L naphthenic acids (3.4 mg/L total organic carbon (TOC)) was achieved under four… CONTINUE READING
