Abstract: There are many pollution parameters such as BOD, COD, phosphorus and nitrogen at high concentrations in the wastewater of dairy industry. These pollutants pose harmful wastewaters to the water sources if necessary prevention are not taken. During the production of different products such as cheese, yoghurt and butter, wastewaters can form in different compositions in the dairy industry. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the removal of COD from yoghurt production wastewater by ultrasound assisted fenton process which is one of the advanced treatment methods. Ultrasound waves far beyond the limits of 20-120 decibels that the human senses can perceive and can influence reactions in the water by cavitation. In this study, the effect of ultrasound on fenton oxidation for different pH and doses were investigated.
