This study investigated the effects of O3 and O3/S2O82− in the advanced oxidation process (AOPs) on the biodegradable and soluble characteristics of semiaerobic stabilized solid waste leachate. The biodegradability (BOD5/COD) ratio improved from 0.034 to 0.05 and 0.29 following O3 and O3/ S2O82−, respectively. Fractions of biodegradable COD(bi) (24%), nonbiodegradable COD(ubi) (76%), soluble COD(s) (59%), biodegradable soluble COD(bsi) (38%), nonbiodegradable soluble COD(ubsi) (62%), and particulate COD (PCOD) (41%) in stabilized leachate were also investigated. The fraction of COD (bi) increased to 28 and 39% after applying O3 and O3/ S2O82− in AOPs, respectively. COD(S) increased to 65 after O3 and to 72% after O3/AOPs, whereas COD (bsi) increased to 38 and 55% after O3 and O3/AOPs, respectively. The removal efficiency of total COD was obtained at 15 after O3 alone and improved to 72% following ozone-based AOPs, whereas PCOD reduced from 41 to 35 after O3 and 28% after ozone-based AOPs. Ozone/Prsulfate is an efficient method for degradation of stabilized leachate, enhanced biodegradability and improved biodegradable and soluble characteristics of stabilized leachate. © 2013 American Institute of Chemical Engineers Environ Prog, 33: 184–191, 2014
