Does UV remove ranitidine?

One common technique for removing ranitidine from water is the use of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV-based systems employ UV lamps to irradiate water, breaking down organic compounds including ranitidine.

However, UV treatment may not fully remove ranitidine. The effectiveness of the removal depends on how easily the compound breaks down when exposed to UV light.

Moreover, operating a UV system requires careful calibration and maintenance to ensure consistent performance.
There may also be concerns regarding energy costs and the disposal of UV lamps and their associated environmental impact when considering this technique in ranitidine water treatment options.

Ranitidine removal by ozone

Another approach is ozone-based water treatment, which involves the use of ozone gas.

Ozone is a powerful oxidant that can effectively degrade organic compounds, including ranitidine, through chemical reactions. However, handling and managing ozone can be challenging, as it is a highly toxic gas that requires careful monitoring and safety protocols.

Additionally, ozone treatment may generate by-products that need to be carefully managed to prevent further contamination.
