Effect of Formic Acid on Pollutant Decomposition in Textile Wastewater Subjected to Treatment by the Fenton Method
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this research was to determine the effect of formic acid on pollutant decomposition in textile wastewater subjected to treatment by the Fenton method. To estimate the effect of formic acid on treatment efficiency for different types of textile wastewater tested, COD reduction in mixtures of wastewater and formic acid was calculated. The values of COD calculated were then compared with COD values obtained experimentally during the oxidation of samples of wastewater-formic acid mixtures in the Fenton process. It was found that the presence of formic acid did not deteriorate the conditions of wastewater treatment in the Fenton process. Thus the presence of formic acid in textile wastewater is more advantageous than that of acetic acid.
