The use of ozone for CN destruction in the metal finishing industry has long been recognized as a technically attractive alternative to chlorine oxidation. High capital cost has, in earlier years, prevented its implementation. This report documents a full scale installation in which it was demonstrated that alkaline cyanide waste could be effectively destroyed to levels well below 1 ppm and with CN(-) removals of 99% at the levels normally encountered, thus satisfying BATEA requirements. Design features, problems and capital and operating cost data are presented and discussed. Selected aspects of the cyanide-ozone reaction were also studied, such as the effect of CN(-)/O3 ratios, cyanide source and concentration and the effectiveness of ozone for cyanate elimination.
