In this work, the performance of batch electrocoagulation (EC) using iron electrodes with monopolar configuration for simultaneous removal of copper (Cu), nickel (Ni), zinc (Zn) and manganese (Mn) from a model wastewater was investigated. The influences of current density (from 2 to 25 mA/cm(2)), initial metal concentration (from 50 to 250 mg/L) and initial pH (3, 5.68, 8.95) on removal efficiency were explored in a batch stirred cell to determine the best experimental conditions.
