The new engineering simulation tool AMOZONE
AM-TEAM launched the novel ozonation process model AMOZONE. This simulation model will help removing financial, regulatory and technological barriers and can significantly accelerate process implementation, design and scale-up.

What is this AMOZONE engineering simulation tool?
AMOZONE predicts ozone transfer and decay, hydroxyl radical production, bromate formation, target pollutant removal and other important phenomena as function of operational and design settings (e.g. sidestream injection vs fine bubble diffusion) and water matrix changes (e.g. surface water A, B, C and secondary efluent A, B and C). The important process factors impacting process performance and cost are given in Figure 1.
Figure 1: overview of the four categories of factors impacting ozonation process performance and cost. The realistic AMOZONE simulation model considers care of all non-human factors.
The model provides in depth process understandiing and can be used to tackle the important challenges mentioned in Figure 2:
Figure 2: the main categories of questions the model can help answering
The model simulates at a very high resolution (i.e. many 'virtual sampling ports') the relevant variables. This resolution can never be obtained with real-life piloting. And any operational setting can be varied easily. (Figures 3-5).
