Ozone (O3) with its high oxidation potential was used to degrade or eliminate pollutants contained in tannery wastewater when applying different pHs and quantities of O3. Our objective was a chemical degradation by O3 to achieve an enhancement of biodegradability, with a parallel decrease in toxicity. Conventional analyses and bioassays beside substance… CONTINUE READING
