This research program was conducted to determine the capability of biological and physical-chemical treatment processes to remove chemical carcinogens and other hazardous organic compounds from water and wastewater. Treatment processes investigated included biological degradation, activated carbon adsorption and oxidation with ozone. Compounds studied were naphthalene, 1,1-diphenylhydrazine, beta-naphthylamine, 4,4'-methylene-bis (2-chloroaniline), and dimethylnitrosamine. All compounds were amenable to biological treatment in continuous flow reactors. Ozone and activated carbon provided effective treatment for all except dimethylnitrosamine.
