Speech Title: Advanced Oxidative Treatment of Textile Wastewater Using Iron-Based Materials Activated Persulfate Process

Abstract: Textile wastewaters are usually heavily colored with dyeing agents. Synthetic azo dye is the largest category of textile colorants which are toxic, and can also be mutagenic or carcinogenic. These dyeing agents are highly resistant to biodegradadation due to their synthetic origin and the complex aromatic molecular structure. Conventional biological processes are usually inadequate in treating these recalcitrant chemicals under increasingly stringent effluent standards. The effective removal of azo dyes from wastewater remains a major challenge to the textile industry. More...
