The article discusses a study related to the removal of pollutants from petroleum refinery wastewater through electrocoagulation treatment. It evaluates the effect of measured dispersion in continuous reactor on chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal efficiency. It notes that iron electrodes have been more effective than aluminum electrodes in removing sulfides from the wastewater.
