Abstract: Semi-batch ozonation experiments were carried out on settled anaerobic sludge dewatering centrate. The observed rate of ammonia decay at pH ranging between 7.5 and 8.5 was much slower than the rates observed in clean water solutions. NO3-N formed was always below 10 percent of the NH3-N lost and did not follow stoichiometric conversion. Apparent and true color decay was significant. Carbonate alkalinity species distribution and solution pH were not significantly affected at the experimental conditions investigated.
