Abstract

Electrochemical techniques such as electrocoagulation (EC) and electrooxidation (EO) have proved their efficiency in the removal of humic acid (HA), coliform, and algae from surface waters. Many investigations have also been conducted with synthetic wastewaters. EC combined with membrane filtration hybrid systems can increase natural organic matter (NOM) removal rates remarkably. In EO technology, electrolysis ...
