"The use of Biological Activated Carbon (BAC) is a viable method for removal of organics from contaminated groundwaters. The main objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of applying BAC treatment to groundwaters contaminated with phenol. The study was conducted using granular activated carbon (GAC) and BAC with or without preozonation. Without ozonation BAC was found to treat 17 times more pore volumes (PV) than GAC in the complete removal of phenol from a contaminated groundwater until breakthrough occurred at 12 PV with GAC. BAC with preozonation was shown to process five times more volumes of the contaminated groundwater than GAC with preozonation to effect 100% removal of phenol until breakthrough occurred at 42 PV with GAC. GAC with preozonation was shown to be more effective in the continued removal of phenol"--Abstract, page iii.
