    The goal of the research was to investigate the degradation of concentrated humic substances by an ozonation/biofiltation system in a side-stream process. The humic substances were concentrated by ion-exchange adsorption and the research was mainly focused on the ozonation of humic substances. To bring the ozone into contact with the HS solution an ozone resistant PVDF membrane module was constructed to serve as gas-liquid contactor.
