This study evaluates the effectiveness of Fenton's oxidation (FO) process and ozone (O(3)) oxidation compared with a coagulation-flocculation (CF) process to remove effluent toxicity as well as colour and COD from a textile industry wastewater. Daphnia magna was used to test acute toxicity in raw and pre-treated wastewater.
