CHAPTER: 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Introduction[1.5] As the use of water is increasing day by day, there is growth in demand for new water treatment technologies as the world’s population increased and fresh water sources are polluted. Therefore its need to find out an alternative method to purify the waste water for recycled or reuse to fulfil the demand of the world. Electrocoagulation is one of the best process for purifying water and waste water from different resources. Waste water treatment technologies used in both municipal and industrial applications have to be further developed in order to reduce the pollution of receiving water bodies. In the last decade, this technology has been increasingly used in the United States and then after many countries started to use this…show more content…
AC current is converted to DC current and is passed through the electrodes, resulting in the destabilization of the pollutants, causing them to separate from the water. The solids are removed during the clarification process, producing treated water that is relatively clear in color and is safe to dispose of through the local sewer system. We may take sewage and effectively reduce the concentrations of COD, TSS, turbidity and other contaminants like several types of dissolved metals, oils, grease etc. which are comfortably and completely measurable. The EC system can meet wastewater requirements from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of gallons of input per day. This solution helpful in commercial, municipal and industrial clients looking to manage wastewater in a cost effective and responsible way and its save the other waters like river, lake, ponds, etc. 1.4.4 Conclusion
