The Electrochemical Treatment of Aqueous Effluent Streams

  • Anselm T. Kuhn


For virtually every type of effluent problem, an electrochemical solution can be envisaged, either by the armchair chemist or his laboratory counterpart. Such approaches have been comprehensively reviewed elsewhere1 and are beyond the scope of this chapter, which concerns itself with those efforts which have been, or which promise to be, successful.
