Abstract

In this paper, the results of hand-printed textile wastewater using physico-chemical and biological treatment as well as Fenton and Fenton-like processes are presented. Fenton and Fenton-like processes showed high COD (>85%) and color (>90%) removal performance on evaluated effluents. On the other hand, capital and operation/maintenance (O&M) costs of conventional (physical/chemical/ biological) and Fenton process (physical/ Fenton process) treatment systems are presented, and specific capital costs for Fenton process system were estimated to be ca. 16% lower than that of conventional treatment. But detailed cost estimations reveal that Fenton process leads to slightly higher O&M costs.
