The performance of electrooxidation (EO) treatment using activated carbon cloth (ACC) electrodes on textile dye bath wastewater was investigated. ACC electrode pairs were used as anode/cathode for EO experiments. The effect of current density (50–150 A/m2), operating time (0–90 minutes), and solution pH (6-11) were tested for removal of chemical oxygen demand (COD), color, and chloride, as well as the changes in conductivity. 95.5% COD and color removal efficiencies were obtained at current density (CD) of 100 A/m2 at solution pH of 10 for 90 minutes. Moreover, the chloride concentration decreased from 4254 to 35.5 mg/L and solution conductivity decreased from 160 to 131 mS/cm at the same conditions. Operating cost of the EO process was calculated to be 3.13 US$/m3 for 36 kWh/m3 energy consumption. The results indicated that the EO process with ACC electrodes achieved high pollutant removal from textile dye bath wastewater.
