LOPEZ, Pamela  and  HARNISTH, Antonio. Dairy industry wastewater electrocoagulation. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.1, pp.13-21. ISSN 1390-6542.

The dairy industry generates lots of water discharge processes, these wastewater are discharged directly into water sources without any pretreatment. . In order to solve this problem there is a treating technique called electrocoagulation that treat of waste water with high organic load. There are three factors to carry out the electrocoagulation process as: time, number of plates and system voltage. After completing the set up and running the experiment, the electrocoagulation treatment efficiency was evident, as the approximate percentage of COD removal was 93%, 82% of BOD5 and 76% of SS.

Keywords : electrocoagulation; turbidity; efficiency; COD; BOD..
