    Abstract: Coagulation process is largely applied for dye removal from textile wastewater treatment. This research aims to focus on implied mechanisms through coagulation of such wastewater. In this work, jar tests are performed to assess the coagulation process as a technique to treat synthetic solutions containing two textile dyes: BF cibacete blue (CB) and... Show More

    Abstract: This work aims to study coagulation process for hard Ghrib Dam (GD) water treatment. Conventional coagulation (CC), enhanced coagulation (EC) and alkaline coagulation (AC) experiments were realized on jar tests. This study demonstrated the effectiveness of GD water treatment by the EC process compared to CC. Indeed, by CC, it has been demonstrated ... Show More

    Abstract: This work aims to investigate the electrocoagulation (EC) of methyl orange (MO) using iron electrodes and examine the effect of magnetic field (MF) on EC performance focusing on electrodes connection mode. Experimentally, an electrochemical cell is made in a configuration as simple as possible to impose a MF parallel to the current density and to a... Show More

    Abstract: There is no doubt that the chemical water treatment has resolved the problem of drinking water supply for several decades to humankind especially in terms of pathogen microorganisms and turbidity removal. However, due to chemicals used through this treatment and increasing quantities of pollutants discharged into nature, numerous health problems ha... Show More
