Electrocoagulation of Landfill Leachate with Monopolar Aluminum Electrodes

Tezcan Un U. and Oduncu E.
Abstract—In this paper, the removal of COD from landfill leachate using aluminum electrode by the electrocoagulation method was investigated. The studies were run with the parallel plate monopolar aluminum electrodes and the effect of pH and current density on removal efficiency of COD and energy consumption were determined. The initial COD concentration of 4100 mg/L was reduced to 1763 mg/L with the removal efficiency of 57% at the current density of 75 mA/cm2 and pH 5.

Index Terms—Aluminium electrode, landfill leachate, treatment.
