HYDROGEN PEROXIDE TREATMENT OF EFFLUENT RESULTING FROM WET AIR OXIDATION OF SHIPBOARD WASTES

At present, effluents resulting from wet air oxidation of shipboard wastes are too high in COD to be discharged overboard. This report describes a method whereby the effluent stream may be further oxidized, or 'polished', with hydrogen peroxide in order to meet the COD limits imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
