Abstract


In most developing countries, the tanneries discharge their waste into the sewer systems, which in turn poured into the waters of continental surface, or used for irrigation of the land. The high concentrations of chromium and hydrogen sulphide present in residual waters of the tanneries have a bearing on the quality of the water and may give him unpleasant tastes and odors. The suspended solids such as lime, hairs, the pieces of fat and flesh, etc., disturb surface water and settle to the bottom, which harmfully affect fish. In our study, we used an original method of electrochemical treatment of tannery effluents in order to quantitatively oxidize the trivalent chromium to hexavalent chromium and simultaneously destroy oxidizable organic compounds. After the electrochemical treatment is complete. The hexavalent chromium is recovered by selective extraction and the organic phase obtained brought into contact with formic acid to reduce the hexavalent chromium to trivalent chromium. The solution obtained can be used as such in chromium plating bath or converted to trivalent chromium derivatives used in the tanning industry.

Author Keywords: electrochemical treatment, tannery effluents, trivalent chromium, hexavalent chromium.
