The recent discovery of the synergistic effects of certain catalysts and ultrasound (sonocatalysis) prompted research investigating the feasibility of using sonocatalysis for advanced wastewater treatment. Sonocatalytic oxidation, sonocatalytic ozonation, and catalytic ozonation were tested individually on treatment plant effluent, and mechanistic studies of sonocatalysis were conducted concurrently using synthetic wastes. Insonation, activated Raney-Nickel catalyst, and air flow produced very large removals of COD, Oxygen Demand Index (ODI), and coliforms from treated waste-waters. Synthetic wastes of phenol and orthochloronitro benzene (OCNB) were prepared and the sonocatalytic ozonation studied. (Author)
