Abstract

The removal of color and chemical oxygen demand (COD) from simulated dye wastewater containing Acid Orange II was experimentally investigated using coagulation-electrooxidation. Two kinds of coagulation methods, ferrous-mediated coagulation and electrocoagulation were tested as pretreatment. The electrooxidation was carried out in a cell with a three-phase three-dimensional electrode using granular activated carbon as particle electrodes. Particular attention was paid to probe the effect of cell voltage, airflow rate, solution conductivity and treatment time on the electrochemical treatment efficiency. The experimental results showed that the coagulation-electrooxidation process could efficiently remove the color and the COD from the simulated dye wastewater. The overall COD and color removal efficiencies reached as high as 99% and 87%, respectively, by ferrous coagulation (molar rate of Fe(II)/dye: 0.5) and 30-min electrolysis (cell voltage: 20.0V and airflow: 0.1 m(3)h(-1)).
