Abstract

In the recent years, petrochemicals are being extensively used in various chemical industries. Among various petrochemicals, purified terephthalic acid (PTA) is a widely applicable petrochemical product. Large amount of wastewater containing various toxic compounds is generated during PTA production. para-Toluic acid (p-TA) is one of the major pollutants of PTA wastewater. The present study emphasizes on the treatment of synthetic petrochemical wastewater containing p-TA (400 mg/L) by peroxi-coagulation (PC) process. Optimization of operating parameters viz. pH, current density, electrode distance, and electrolysis time during PC treatment was performed by Response Surface Methodology. Maximum removal of p-TA- 77.40% and COD- 71.50% was obtained with minimum electrical energy consumption (kWh/kg CODremoved)- 22.32 at optimum operating conditions.
