The present work evaluates pre-ozonation for removal of acute toxicity, color and COD as well as reduction of inert soluble COD fractions in two wastewater samples (S1 and S2) taken from a textile finishing industry, located in Istanbul (Turkey). The wastewater samples were oxidized at original pH of 8.6-8.8 under 18.5-24 mg/L of applied ozone doses. Acute toxicity was monitored using Daphnia magna. The results showed that pre-ozonation improved the biodegradability and reduced the acute… CONTINUE READING
