Removing heavy metals from water has been a subject of high interest in the recent decades. The global concern aimed at identifying efficient and inexpensive methods for wastewaters depollution. Ozonation is one of the successful methods, due to the ozone strong oxidative attributes. The present paper is a study on decreasing the concentration of lead ions through ozone barbotage. The study was made at two different temperatures and different exposure time intervals, as means to creating optimal conditions for lead removal from wastewaters through ozonation.
