    Abstract

    Continuous experiments were conducted to evaluate the electrolytic performance of a novel 3-dimensional electrolytic cell consisting of granular Pt/Ti electrodes. The electric current efficiency to decompose indigotrisulfonate was approx. 96%, while energy consumption was one to two orders of magnitude smaller than that for O3 treatment. Furthermore, the cell was successfully applied to treat trace endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and chlorinated compounds. Energy consumption was in the range of 2 to 10 Wh/m3. From these results, it was concluded that the present electrolytic cell would be a feasible alternative to conventional oxidation processes in water treatment.
