This study investigates the fate of chlorine species and other inorganic compounds during electro-Fenton electrolysis treatment of reclaimed wastewater. The aim of this study is to understand how the matrix of species in wastewater would be influenced by electrolysis as a tertiary treatment process. MATLAB® mathematical modeling software was used to obtain reaction pathways and rate constants of chlorine species in synthetic wastewater. This model was then mirrored onto the experimental data of real wastewater and compared to those results previously obtained. It was determined that the mathematical model fit both the synthetic and real wastewater data, therefore confirming that the experimental tests using synthetic wastewater are an accurate representation of the real circumstances.
