Abstract

In this study, chemical oxidation demand (COD) and color removal efficiencies of a textile industry were tested using chemical and ozone oxidation treatment techniques. The industry uses chemical processes to treat its wastewater, so it needs much time and operation cost. Herein, the applicability of ozone oxidation techniques was discussed as an alternative to the chemical treatment.
