Abstract

This study showed the effectiveness of biological pretreatment involving appropriate microorganisms and suitable support media in a combined process. The combined process consists of biological pretreatment, chemical coagulation and electrochemical oxidation. COD and color were reduced by 95.4% and 98.5% by the combined process, respectively.
