Removal of triazophos pesticide from wastewater with Fenton reagent.


PMID 19233558

Abstract

The catalytic oxidation of triazophos pesticide from wastewater using Fenton reagent was investigated at bench-scale in this study. Synthesized wastewater and actual industrial triazophos pesticide wastewater taken from a pesticide company were examined sequentially. The COD values of the synthesized and actual industrial triazophos pesticide wastewater samples were 3242 and 3418 mg/L, respectively, and the triazophos concentration in these wastewater samples was 0.06% by weight. The effects of reaction conditions including the dosages of FeSO(4).7H(2)O and H(2)O(2), the pH value of the environment, and the stirring time on COD removal from the synthesized wastewater were evaluated, and COD removal efficiency of 96.3% with a corresponding effluent COD value of 120 mg/L was achieved under optimal reaction conditions of a pH value of 4, a dosage of 2.5 g/L of FeSO(4).7H(2)O and 100 mL/L of 30% H(2)O(2) solution, and a stirring time of 90 min. Results also showed that 71.2% of nitrogen and 68.5% of phosphorous in the synthesized triazophos wastewater were converted to NO(3)(-) and PO(4)(3-), respectively, at the optimal reaction condition. When the actual industrial wastewater was treated at a pH value of 4, COD removal efficiency of 85.4% with a corresponding effluent COD value of 499 mg/L were reached at optimal condition of a dosage of 5.0 g/L of FeSO(4).7H(2)O and 75 mL/L of 30% H(2)O(2) solution, and a stirring time of 90 min. The results of this study can be referred for the design of a treatment process for the actual industrial triazophos wastewater.
