The following chemical treatment processes discussed in this section are commonly used for waste treatment applications. These include

• pH adjustment (for neutralization or precipitation)

• Oxidation and reduction

• Hydrolysis and photolysis

• Chemical oxidation (ozonation, electrolytic oxidation, hydrogen peroxide)

• Chemical dehalogenation (alkaline metal dechlo-rination, alkaline metal/polyethylene glycol, based-catalyzed dechlorination)

Important chemical treatment data needs are presented in Table 11.15.3.
