Electrochemical removal of tetrahydrofuran from industrial wastewaters: anode selection and process scale-up

Abstract: In this work, industrial wastewaters with an average tetrahydrofuran (THF) concentration of 688 ± 140 mg L-1 were treated by electrooxidation. Four anodic materials were tested: RuO2, Pt, PbO2 and boron-doped diamond (BDD). Bench scale experiments (volume treated 1 L, anode area 140 cm2) and pilot scale tests (volume treated 200 L, anode area 2800 cm2) were performed, and the influence of the applied current density, in the range 300
