Abstract:

In the second year of the development of the UV-ozone wateroxidation process, effort was directed to the oxidation of specific individual organic compounds and mixtures of organics dissolved in water. Organic compounds of interest to the Army Medical Research and Development Command and NASA were hydroquinone, pyrogallol, xylenol, urea, and sodium acetate. Other compounds also evaluated were ethanol, glycerol, glycine, and acetic acid. Process variables such as UV intensity, ozone concentration, ozone mass flow, agitation, residence time, temperature, and pH were examined on a batch and continuous basis to determine their effect on oxidation efficiency and the power required for generating ozone and UV. All the above variables, with the exception of pH, agitation and temperature, have a significant effect on power demand and oxidation efficiency.
