Olive oil MillWastewater treatment by the electro-Fenton process

Abstract : Treatment of olive oil mill wastewater is one of the most important environmental problems for Mediterranean countries. This wastewater contains many organic compounds like polyphenols, which are very difficult to treat by classical techniques. An advanced electrochemical oxidation process, the electro-Fenton process, has been used as a way of removing chemical oxygen demand and colour intensity from olive oil mill wastewater. Vanillic acid, which has been selected as a model compound, and olive oil mill wastewater have been completely mineralized by the electro-Fenton process with a carbon felt cathode, using Fe2+ ions as the catalyst.
