Abstract: Pure oxygen, ozone, and CO2 are found to be very valuable chemicals that offer significant economic rewards when properly used in the water treatment applications, pH control, aquaculture industry, water disinfection, and more. Attractive reduction in the maintenance and operating costs; very attractive return on investment; and flexibility of operation are some of the salient features of such applications. This presentation discusses the use of oxygen in wastewater treatment and aquaculture industry; the use of CO2 for pH control; and the use of ozone for disinfecting drinking water.
