Abstract

In this research, the electrolysis of municipal -wastewater is carried out for the production of hydrogen. The municipal wastewater waste is electrolyzed to produce hydrogen. Hydrogen is considered as renewable and sustainable solution for reducing fossil fuel consumption and combating global warming. Municipal wastewater electrolysis is one of the alternative ways to produced synthetic fuel gas since it is available in plentiful supply on the earth. The objectives of this work were to characterize the municipal wastewater before the electrolysis and to characterize the electrolyzed municipal wastewater. Besides, the objectives also to determine the quantity of produced synthetic fuel gas. A number of parameters are investigated including molarities, ampere and synthetic fuel gas production. The molarities used for the electrolysis of municipal wastewater are 0.15 molar and 0.4 molar, amperes taken while running the electrolysis and the quantity of synthetic fuel gas production determined. Some laboratory testing done to characterized the municipal wastewater before the electrolysis and characterization of electrolyzed municipal wastewater. The characterization for raw municipal wastewater is in term of turbidity, suspended solid, pH, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) while the electrolyzed municipal wastewater is characterized for BOD and COD only. Percentage removal of BOD and COD determine so that:the effect of molarities to the electrolysis of municipal wastewater can be defined.
