Leather industry wastewaters, also known as tannery wastewaters, are considered as a serious environmental threat to receiving surface waters, not only because of the high chemical oxygen demand (COD), but also for the presence of heavy metals such as chromium ions used in the scarcely industrialized manufacturing process. Conventional as well as emerging biological wastewater treatment processes have shown to be ineffective for handling this type of wastewaters, which are practically disposed… CONTINUE READING
