Resourceful treatment of alcohol distillery wastewater by pulsed discharge

Resourceful treatment of alcohol distillery wastewater by pulsed discharge in liquid (PDL) was first studied in this work. The biodegradability of alcohol wastewater can be effectively improved and chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal attained over 40% within 15min PDL treatment. Hydrogen produced from the treating processes was emphatically analyzed. The flow rate, and yield of hydrogen achieved were 80mL/min, 146mL/g COD removed within 30min respectively, which were much better than existing technologies. Meanwhile, the mechanism of hydrogen production from alcohol distillery wastewater by PDL was presented in this work indicating that different region in reactor has different mechanism. In discharge channel, high-energy electrons and resultant free radicals played a leading role. Far away from discharge channel, the neutral particles with strong oxidizing were more important. This work can be a good guidance for both treatment of refractory wastewater and mechanism of hydrogen production by plasma reforming.
