Paper Title:
Application of Pulse Electrocoagulation to Dye Wastewater Treatment
  Abstract

Electrocoagulation (EC) has been proven by a substantial number of studies to be an efficient technology to remove organic pollutants from wastewater. Nevertheless, the high energy consumption of this technology inhibits its extensive application. The objective of this work is to investigate the feasibility of electrical energy conservation and high efficiency by using Pulse Electrocoagulation (PE). PE, a combination of a pulsing technique and EC, was proposed in an attempt to treat the dye wastewater. The results demonstrated that PE, as compared with DCE (direct current electrocoagulation), resulted in up to 51.66% energy conservation by using two iron electrodes as anode and cathode. Moreover, this high energy conservation was obtained during a high level of treatment efficiency: 99.62% of color removal and 91.15% of COD removal for 1000 mg L-1 4BS solution in a short electrolyzing time of 15 mins.
