Abstract: Large amounts of ethylene glycol (EG) based antifreeze liquids are daily discharge into the receiving waters. The chemical oxygen demand (COD) detected in most of the lakes and rivers close to the discharge points exceeded 100 000 mg O 2 /L. With such an amount, biological and chemical processes are inefficient to completely remove EG. In order to efficiently remove EG, electrochemical oxidation (ECO) of EG was carried out. Niobium Boron Doped Diamond (Nb/BDD) was used as anode whereas carbon felt was used as …
