Fenton's reagent has been shown to be a feasible technique to treat phenolic-type compounds present in a variety of food processing industry wastewaters. A model compound, p-hydroxybenzoic acid was oxidised by continuously pumping two solutions of ferrous iron and hydrogen peroxide. Typical operating variables like reagent feeding concentrations and flowrate, temperature and pH were studied. A mechanism of reactions based on the classical Fenton's chemistry was assumed, and computed… CONTINUE READING
