Treatment of Tannery Waste Water using Advanced Oxidation Process

Authors(2) :-Charumol S, Dr. S. Keerthinarayana

This paper evaluates the efficiency of Fenton process for the treatment of tannery waste water. Advanced oxidation processes is based on the chemistry of hydroxyl radicals (•OH) production and are used for destroying organic pollutants. Fenton’s reaction is a system based on the generation of very reactive free radicals, especially hydroxyl radicals, which have a stronger oxidation potential. Fenton reagent is the result of reaction between hydrogen peroxide and ferrous iron producing hydroxyl radical. Studies were made to investigate the maximum removal of COD from tannery waste water varying Fe2+, H2O2 dosage and initial pH. The initial characteristics of the wastewater were checked. Experiments were carried out at a laboratory scale at different dosage to find out the optimum dosage of ferrous sulphate and H2O2 and also optimum pH value for maximum COD removal.
