Abstract

Purpose: A study was conducted to determine the effect of solar radiation in Fenton process on Palm Oil Mill Secondary Effluent (POMSE) and the efficiency of the process was assessed based on COD and color removal. The usability of recovery and reuse iron containing sludge as a source of iron was also determined.
Methodology: POMSE sample was collected from a palm oil mill located in Kuala Kubu Baru,Selangor. The solar Fenton process was conducted in batch mode at laboratory scale. The solar energy was employed in the Fenton process. The POMSE was characterized in terms of pH, COD, color, suspended solid and total iron. The experimental work consists of two stages where the first stage was oxidation reaction at different reaction times which are 30 and 60 minutes. The experiment was followed by second stage which is oxidation process using iron recovered from Fenton sludge as a source of iron instead of fresh iron. This stage was repeated for five times. The supernatant and sludge were characterized after treatment process. Result: The result for pH, color, COD, total iron and suspended solid of POMSE were 8.10, 315 ADMI, 206 mg/L, 0.7 mg/Land 149 mg/L respectively. The COD and color removal for 30 minutes reaction time were 43% and 93% respectively. For 60 minutes reaction time, the COD and color removal were 66% and 84% respectively. There is no significant difference on reaction times for the treatment process with p-value= 0.378 and 0.423 (p-value> 0.05). The Fenton sludge was characterized in terms of specific gravity, moisture content, VSS, TSS and metal content which is iron (Fe). The ability of iron sludge as iron source also was observed through performance of color and COD removal. The color removal percentage ranged from 30% to 67% for 30 minutes reaction time and 3% to 84% for 60 minutes reaction time. The COD removal was 7% for 30 minutes and 21 % for 60 minutes. There was no COD removal occurred from recycle 2 to recycle 5 using recovered iron. Conclusion: Solar Fenton process was found to be efficient in treating
the wastewater based on removal of COD and color. The iron recovery from sludge generated in Fenton oxidation was feasible according to the removal of color but further study is needed on iron recovery sludge.
