ADAPTABILITY OF ELECTROCHEMICAL IN INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT: AN OVERVIEW
Majority of the industrial effluents comprise of recalcitrant organic pollutants and the conventional treatment approaches do not bring down these pollutant‘s concentration. EC has proved to be a promising technology providing effective solutions. The present review explores the evolution, approach, application and suitability of adopting EC in treating various industrial wastewaters possessing different strength. Various researchers have attempted to highlight EC as an effective approach for replacing conventional coagulation and flocculation process. Despite, various advantages, stated in the literature, its industrial use is not yet regarded as a proven wastewater technology because of the absence of systematic reactor set up and the energy needed to gain complete mineralization is often considerable. Effect of various operating parameters that includes presentation of different sacrificial anodes and its potentiality in the removal efficiency of various parameters that includes influence of pH as the determining parameter for the performance of the treatment method, effects of the CD, electrolysis duration and presence of the supporting electrolyte have been presented.
