Abstract


The present work focuses on the electrocoagulation treatment of an Evans blue solution (B.E). Of the four bottom salts (KCl, NaCl, Na2SO4, K2SO4) used for the treatment, it appears that, for an optimum charge density of 2.33 F/m3 and a voltage set at 1.5V, potassium chloride (KCl) provides the best abatement rate (95.5%). The variation of the pH of the solution reveals that the best abatement rates are obtained for the basic pH. pH 9 is optimal for treatment whereas for pH values above 10, inefficiency is noted. The speed of the treatment increases with the density of the applied current, the treatment is efficient and the energy cost is limited for a current density value set at 20 mA/ cm2. For the same set values of charge density and voltage, the abatement rate is inversely proportional to the concentration of B.E, and aluminum is better suited as electrode material, compared to iron.

Author Keywords: electrocoagulation, Evans blue, abatement rate, charge density, current density.
