How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Wastewater treatment and low energy consumption are two important environmental issues. In this work, a challenging treatment problem of leather industry wastewater is chosen as a case study to combine the issue of energy and treatment efficiency using a common denominator of oxygen demand. Tannery wastewater is known for its highly contaminated st...
Electrochemical treatment of wastewaters that are rich in organic compounds is a popular method, due to its acidic nature that avoids biological treatment. In many cases, the pollution hazard is considered as the chemical oxygen demand (COD) from active carbon, and the success of the treatment is measured in terms of how much this specific paramete...
