Abstract: The ultrasound process has been used for the degradation of organic substances in water and wastewater treatment in recent years. The chemical reactions occurring in the wastewater with strong sound waves can be accelerated in appropriate pressure and temperature conditions and the efficiency of the treatment can be increased by converting them into more harmless products. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the efficiency of COD removal from cheese production wastewater by ultrasound assisted fenton oxidation. The effects of different pH values and doses on COD removal efficiency have examined in experimental studies.
