Abstract: NDMA formation from treated wastewater is one of the concerns in water reuse. This study focused on NDMA formation potential (NDMAFP) in wastewater treated effluent and NDMAFP removal by UV/H2O2 technology. NDMAFP was measured and NDMA organic precursors were characterized. UV/H2O2 system was tested on the removal effect on both organic precursors and NDMAFP. Activated sludge process (ASP) effluent and membrane bio-reactor (MBR) effluent were tested. Results showed similar NDMA formation kinetics between two effluents. Weak correlation (R2 = 0.45) was observed between dissolved organic nitrogen (DON) in molecules with small molecular weight and NDMAFP. Experiment on UV/H2O2 system showed efficient dissolved organic carbon (DOC) removal (70%). DON removal was less efficient (30%). 80% of NDMAFP in ASP effluent was removed within one hour. However, no NDMAFP removal was discovered in MBR effluent. This indicated that UV/H2O2 system on NDMAFP removal was water specific.
