In this study, The effects of empty bed contact time (EBCT) and water temperature on the biodegradation of 8 UV filters in biological activated carbon (BAC) process were investigated. Experiments were conducted at two water temperatures (7 and 18℃) and three EBCTs (5, 10 and 15 min). Increasing EBCT and water temperature increased the biodegradation efficiency of UV filters in BAC column. EHMC and BZC were the highest biodegradation efficiency, but BP and 4-MBC were the lowest. The kinetic analysis suggested a first-order reaction model for biodegradation of 8 UV filters at various water temperatures and EBCTs. The first-order biodegradation rate constants (kbio) of 8 UV filters ranging from 0.2730~0.6365 min-1 at 7℃ to 0.4824~ 0.8743 min-1 at 18℃. By increasing the water temperature from 7℃ to 18℃, the biodegradation rate constants (kbio) were increased 1.5~2.1 times.
Key Words: UV Filters, Biological Activated Carbon (BAC) Process, Biodegradation, Water Temperature, Empty Bed Contact Time (EBCT)
