Özet

In this work, continuous ozonation of aqueous Acid Red-151 was performed in a stirred tank reactor at neutral pH and 25 degrees C. The results show that ozonation is capable of a rapid conversion of the Acid Red-151 dye molecule to more biodegradable intermediates up to the ozonation time of 120 min at which the optimum BOD5/COD ratio is obtained. The peak BOD5/COD ratios were found to be in the range of 0.028-0.35 for the initial dye concentrations being in the range of 1000-100 mg/L, respectively.
