Comparison Of Electrocoagulation And Coagulation Techniques For The Municipal Wastewater Treatment
The present study provided a quantitative comparison between chemical coagulation and electrocoagulation
(EC) treatment for removal of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and total suspended solids (TSS) from municipal
wastewater for further reuse in agriculture. The treated wastewater provided from the municipal wastewater treatment
plant has quality indicators exceeding the maximum discharge limits such as COD and TSS. The performances of the
electrocoagulation and chemical coagulation are presented comparatively, as wastewater treatment technologies taken into
consideration to reach the above mentioned purpose in agreement with Jordanian standards, guidelines and regulations. In
this case study, the performances were obtained for the coagulation and electrocoagulation can remove pollutants by a large
margin. The removal efficiencies of COD and TSS were 84% and 97%, 83% and 90% respectively by coagulation
designed unit and electrocoagulation designed unit respectively .The defenses between these processes only on the period
of time to achieve these results.
