2D Electrocoagulation of Navy-Blue 3G Dye Wastewater Using Aluminium Electrode
Abstract: Textile or dye wastewater is complex and toxic due to presence of complex chemicals in them hence difficult to treat with conventional biological treatment. Electrocoagulation and adsorption using granular activated carbon (GAC) are good treatments when dispersed color is present in the solution. This paper reports effect of current density and dye concentration on color removal ( %) when simulated dye wastewater was subject to 2D electrocoagulation where, added dimension is particle electrode between conventional anode and cathode assembly. Complete removal of color was observed at higher time or more current density, simultaneously initial dye concentration has shown inverse effect on color removal.
