Oxidation off acid red 151 solutions by peroxone(o3/h2o2) process

Acar, Ebru
Wastewaters from textile industry contain organic dyes, which cannot be easily treated by biological methods. Therefore, pretreatment by an advanced oxidation process (AOP) is needed in order to produce more readily biodegradable compounds and to remove color and chemical oxygen demand (COD) simultaneously. In this research, ozone (O3) is combined with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) for the advanced oxidation of an azo dye solution, namely aqueous solution of Acid Red 151, which is called as أPeroxone processؤ. The aim of the study is to enhance the ozonation efficiency in treating the waste dye solution. The effects of pH, initial dye and initial ozone concentrations and the concentration ratio of initial H2O2 to initial O3 on color and COD removals were investigated. Also, the kinetics of O3-dye reaction in the presence of H2O2 was approximately determined. As a result of the experimental study, it was seen that an increase in the initial dye concentration at a constant pH and initial ozone concentration did not change the COD % removal significantly, from a statistical analysis of the data. The results obtained at pH values of 2.5 and 7 gave higher oxidation efficiencies in terms of color and COD removals compared to those at pH of 10. The best initial molar ratio of H2O2 to O3 was found to be 0.5, which yielded highest treatment efficiency for each pH value studied. The results of the excess dye experiments suggest that the ozonation of Acid Red 151 follows an average first order reaction with respect to ozone at pH=2.5 and pH=7 whereas it is around 0.56 at pH=10. By Initial Rate Method, the orders with respect to individual reactants of O3 and dye were determined as one, the total order of the reaction being two for all the studied pH. As a conclusion, a further study of the peroxone process at a pH of 10 can be recommended to determine the reaction kinetics and


Use of calcium alginate as a coagulant in water treatment
Çoruh, Hale Aylin; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2005)
Coagulation and flocculation processes are important parts of water and wastewater treatment. Coagulation or destabilization of colloidal suspensions results in aggregation of colloidal particles by physical and chemical processes. Flocculation results in the formation of larger and settleable structures by bridging. Alginate, a polysaccharide obtained from marine brown algae, produces a gel structure when mixed with calcium ions, which is expected to be a potential coagulant in water treatment. This study ...
Decolorization of Synthetic Dye Solutions by Using Basaltic Tephra and Clinoptilolite
Duygulu, Yusuf Bahadır; Atımtay, Aysel; Department of Environmental Engineering (2004)
Discharge of colored effluents without decoloration originated from textile industries may cause serious problems in the receiving environments. In this study, natural materials that are basaltic tephra and clinoptilolite were used to remove various dyestuffs used in the textile industry. Those materials are cheap and available in large quantities in Turkey. The investigation of adsorption of basic, acidic and reactive dyes on these materials is the objective of this study. During preliminary experiments it...

Pirgalıoğlu, Saltuk; Özbelge, Ayşe Tülay; Department of Chemical Engineering (2008)
Treatment of textile wastewaters containing dye materials using the conventional methods based on biological treatment is not possible. In order to overcome this problem, ozonation based on the oxidation of organic pollutants with ozone gas dissolved in aqueous phase have been studied widely. Catalytic ozonation and advanced oxidation processes (AOP) are also used in order to increase the efficiency of sole ozonation In this work, catalytic ozonation processes in the presence of Copper Sulfide (CuS) powder ...
Laboratory investigation of the treatment of chromium contaminated groundwater with iron-based permeable reactive barriers
Uyuşur, Burcu; Ünlü, Kahraman; Department of Environmental Engineering (2006)
Chromium is a common groundwater pollutant originating from industrial processes such as metal plating, leather tanning and pigment manufacturing. Permeable reactive barriers (PRBs) have proven to be viable and cost-effective systems for remediation of chromium contaminated groundwater at many sites. The purpose of this research presented in this thesis is to focus on two parameters that affect the performance of PRB on chromium removal, namely the concentration of reactive media and groundwater flux by ana...
Catalytic ozonation of synthetic wastewaters containing three different dyes in a fluidized bed reactor
Balcı, Ayşe İrem; Özbelge, Ayşe Tülay; Department of Chemical Engineering (2011)
Environmental regulations have imposed limitations on a wide variety of organic and inorganic pollutants in industrial textile wastewaters. There are several degradation methods used in literature studies. Among these methods ozonation is one of the most considered way to degrade refractory chemicals in textile wastewaters. In recent years, catalytic ozonation as being one of the advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), is applied to reduce the ozone consumption and to increase the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) ...
