Abstract This study deals with the removal of nitrate from water by electrocoagulation process using zinc and stainless steel as anode and cathode respectively. The optimizations of various experimental operating parameters like effect of electrolyte pH, current density, temperature, and inter-electrode distance on the removal of nitrate were carried out. The effect of co-existing anions such as carbonate, phosphate, silicate and phosphate was studied on the removal efficiency of nitrate. The… Expand
