Human society always tries to elaborate itself towards the progress. During this journey, human needs to mitigate the Industrialization problems as well as the Environmental issues. The handling and management of wastewater generated in industries is the major problem. The wastewater contains different types of pollutants and it is important to remove the same from the wastewater before disposing it. We are focusing on the removal of Total Dissolve Solids from wastewater through Electro-coagulation Process. Electrocoagulation is a surface reaction. It is the process of passing electric current through a waste water, using anode and cathode. In this experiment iron and aluminium electrodes are used and the sample is made up to run at different intervals of time i.e., 5, 10,15 and 20 minutes and different range of amperes of current is passed in the sample i.e., 0.12 A, 0.25A, 0.36A. The combination effects of current, pH and treatment time to the efficiency of the electrocoagulation process for the removal of Total Dissolved Solids, pH, Color, chlorides etc, from the industrial effluent showed that only current(C) and treatment time (t) have correlation with each other. It concluded that the batch which is operated at 0.25A for 20 minutes has maximum removal efficiency of Total Dissolved Solids, pH, Color, chlorides, COD etc.
