Abstract:

The aim of this study was to determine the efficiency of the decomposition of pollutants present in textile wastewater in the Fenton process. The main processing parameters, namely the optimum quantities of hydrogen peroxide and ferric salts added as well as the pH of a solution, were determined in textile wastewater formed during different technological operations. These data were used to verify the applicability of empirical formulae describing these values. It was found that the use of Fenton’s reagent in the technology of textile wastewater treatment was an efficient method for the decomposition of pollutants and could be successfully applied as a preliminary stage prior to further biological treatment. To achieve the proper efficiency and economy of this solution, continuous control of the wastewater composition and quick optimisation of process conditions are required. It is necessary to check the reaction for a large amount of various types of wastewater and to find relevant relations which would enable quick optimisation of the process with respect to the changing input parameters of the wastewater subjected to treatment.
