Advanced oxidation (UV-ozone) and cyclodextrin sorption: Effects of individual and combined action on the chemical abatement of organic pollutants in industrial effluents

Abstract

Among organic pollutants, four families have been listed as priority substances by the European Agency, namely polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chlorophenols (CPs) and alkylphenols (APs). In this study, sorption onto a non-conventional cyclodextrin-based material alone as well as in combination with advanced oxidation using a UV-ozone process as pretreatment was applied for the removal of PAHs, VOCs, CPs and APs from industrial effluents. After the various treatments proposed, we present the abatements obtained in the levels of chemical pollution monitored by a complete chemical analysis, and total organic carbon (TOC) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) measurements. High levels of pollutant removal were attained with the combined use of oxidation and sorption. The treatment led to the almost total elimination of organics such as chloroform, 1,2-dichlorobenzene, 2,4,6-trichlorophenol, nonylphenol and phenanthrene. The treatment also lowered TOC and COD by more than 84% and 93%, respectively. This combined lab-scale process using a non-conventional material could constitute an advantageous technology for removing organic pollutants when scaled up to treat polycontaminated industrial effluent.
