Tannery wastewater contain organic pollutants which are difficult to degrade biologically. Handling of these pollutants can be done by advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) such as electro-Fenton. The aim of the experiment was to obtain optimum condition for tannery wastewater treatment using electro-Fenton method. The process was done with the current variation of 1.13 A, 1.71 A, and 2.02 A, electrolysis time and stirring 0.25 h, 1 h and 2 h, and the electrode distance of 2 cm and 3 cm. The optimum operating conditions were obtained at the current strength of 1.13 A, process time of 2 h and electrode spacing of 2 cm.


Keywords: wastewater, tannery, electro-Fenton, chemical oxygen demand
