Abstract

This research was conducted to investigate the performance of aluminium electrode in electrocoagulation process removing chemical oxygen demand (COD), ammonia, turbidity, colour and suspended solid (SS) from Simpang Renggam landfill leachate. Effects of current density, electrolysis duration and pH were observed in this study. From the data obtained, optimum condition at current density was recorded at 200 A/m2with the electrolysis duration of 20-minutes and optimum pH value at 4. The removal recorded at this condition for COD, ammonia, colour, turbidity and suspended solid were 60%, 37%, 94%, 88% and 89% respectively. Electrocoagulation treatment give a better result and can be applied for leachate treatment in future. Thus, electrocoagulation treatment has the potential to be used in treatment of leachate.
