Disposal of solid waste through landfill generates landfill leachate. It leads to sever environmental harmful and health effects. Treatment of Sanitary landfill leachate is considered as one of the most significant environmental issues. This paper has been investigated Electrocoagulation treatment process using Iron electrode for sanitary landfill leachate in terms of efficiency and economical beneficial. The effects of process variables like pH, applied cell voltage, operating time are on COD and NH3-N removal efficiencies. This process was carried out in a batch reactor of 1 litter capacity and samples of 0.5 l were taken out for analysis at 15, 30, 45 minutes of operation and at 3, 6, 9V . Results obtained from the experiments showed that COD and NH3-N removal efficiency 45.79% and 43.21% for 9V, 30 minutes of operation.
