Textile Effluent Degradation by Photoelectrolytical Process

Paula da Silva Carvalho, Mariana Lopes de Sousa, Paulo Renato Matos Lopes, Peterson Bueno de Moraes, Ederio Dino Bidoia


Methodologies used in textile effluents treatment consist in different ways: biological, chemical and physical-chemical. Thus, electrochemical and photochemical processes are promising such as an alternative or complementary treatment. Therefore, an experimental photoelectrolytic system was used to treat a simulated effluent containing Remazol Navy Blue dye (C.I. Reactive Blue 89). This photoelectrolytic reactor presented a commercial anode (70TiO2/30RuO2.) and an UVC lamp. The results demonstrated the treatment was able to degrade the dye in good cost-efficiency performance.
