Development of Advanced Wastewater Treatment with Ozone Oxidation and Flotation Technique for Maximum Water Reuse

Objective

The EU countries are still far away from the goal of reducing hazardous substances polluting European waters. Today, the Union's problem in this regard is worsening considering the state of water quality in the new member countries. Due to the lack of available effective onsite technologies, a bulk of the industrial activities are not treating their wastewater as required. In 2001, 38% of the total pollution management expenditure by environmental media in EU15 constituted wastewater management. However, available technologies in wastewater treatment have not been able to redress the pressure on European waters to an acceptable level. In light of this, the European Parliament and the Commission have now launched the Environmental Technologies Action Plan (ETAP) where Water Quality and development of advanced treatment methods are among the main issues. Our idea is to develop an advanced oxidation method by innovative development of ozone flotation technology for treatment of industrial wastewater cost effectively, fulfilling the need of the European industry meet emission standards and apply water reuse. The treatment system addresses the challenges related to sustainability of the European manufacturing industry, competitiveness and issues of water resource management. To achieve these objectives, we need to develop a novel ozone injection unit which maximizes the oxidation process with minimal amount of ozone especially for oxidation of recalcitrant substances; development of flotation chamber that enhances optimal diffusion of microbubbles, and a process control unit for ozone injection and pollution removal.
