Treatment of a Malaysian Leachate Sample Using Electrocoagulation

Masoumeh MoayeriKashani, Salman Masoudi Soltani, and S. Sobri

Abstract—A real leachate sample, taken from a Kuala Lumpur suburban area, was used in order to investigate the efficiency of electrocoagulation using Fe electrodes as both cathodes and anodes to reduce chemical oxygen demand (COD) and color of the sample. The effects of pH value and current density on the efficiency of the leachate treatment were investigated. Meanwhile, it was well understood that using this approach for the treatment of the studied leachate could successfully lower the COD value and color of the leachate wastewater by 81% and 72%, respectively. To the knowledge of the authors, to date, no real leachate samples have been treated by electrocoagulation methods elsewhere.

Index Terms—Chemical oxygen demand, color,electrocoagulation, leachate
