    Abstract: Modeling is an indispensable tool for a better wastewater treatment strategy. However, the modelling of slaughterhouse wastewater treatment by electrocoagulation can be difficult to achieve because of the various physico-chemical mechanisms involved. It is in this context that the objective of this study was to model and optimize COD removal and el... Show More
