Project title:

Design and Development of a new innovative unit for treatment of wastewater discharged from petrochemical industries using electrical D.C and Pulsed power system

 

Starting date: (month, year): 2015

End date: (month, year): 2018

 

PI: Prof. Ahmed Elshazly

Funded by: STDF

 

Summary:

A setup of two pin-to-plate high-voltage corona discharge system has been designed and investigated experimentally for its effect on the removal of Acid blue 25 dye. Experimental measurements were carried out to determine the effect of different parameters such as con-tact time, agitation speed, gap distance between the high voltage and ground electrode, and materials of pin and plate on decoloration efficiency of the dye. The decolorization behavior using Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) non-thermal plasma exhibit 80% dye removal efficiency within 10min. The complete decolorization was achieved within 35min for different initial dye concentrations from 10 up to 100ppm. The influences of pin and plate material types on the treatment process were examined with three different materials: Aluminum, Copper and Stainless steel.

 

Objectives and Impact:

Industrial wastewater treatment for contaminates degradation using advanced technique of non- thermal plasma.

 

SDGs that the project achieved: GOAL 6: Clean Water and Sanitation.
