|Abstract:||The textile and dyeing industry are responsible for releasing highly contaminated coloured effluent leading to intense water pollution. This paper reports the results of an efficient electrochemical removal of colour and reduction in toxicity of textile industry effluents. The electrochemical behaviour is analyzed and assessed in terms of removal of colour, decrease in absorbance, time taken to completely remove colour from the dye solution, decrease in chemical oxidation demand, total dissolved solids and disappearance of any reduction peak in colourless solution, thereby indicating the absence of electrochemically active break down product.|
