The growing demand for fresh water is partially satisfied by desalination plants that increasingly use membrane technologies and among them advanced oxidation processes emerging ozone to produce purified water. In this research, the water purification technology using advanced oxidation processes emerging ozone to be able to eliminate the content of humus acids and organic compounds is developed. The laboratory test for three different sample of peat water indicated that the water purification still contaminated with high organic matter with pH less than 7. It can be concluded that the proposed method still require an extended processing to produce consumable water.
