Abstract: Due to process stability and excellent effluent quality, the use of membrane processes is rapidly expanding. However, a drawback is the production of concentrates and their proper disposal. In this study, reverse osmosis concentrate was treated by Fenton and O3/UV oxidation processes. The concentrate contains halogenated compounds, recalcitrant COD and low biodegradability. The removal of halogenated compounds and the enhancement of biodegradability were examined. Comparing the investigated processes, Fenton oxidation resulted in a better mineralization of organic matter, however, O3/UV oxidation achieved a better enhancement of the biodegradability. Furthermore, similar degradation of halogenated compounds were observed for both oxidation processes.
