Ozonation as a Treatment Option for Produced Water Effluents

Lead PI: Dr. Bing Chen

Subject Category: Health, Safety and the Environment

Start Date: 2012
End Date: 2015
Institution / Organization: Memorial University

This project will adapt existing techniques to determine how ozonation impacts the composition and toxicity of dissolved organic compounds in produced water effluents.  By identifying and quantifying the variables controlling the ozonation process, the results from this study will assist the petroleum industry in deciding whether ozonation is a viable and cost effective technology that could be used for the treatment of produced water.
