This investigation attempts to study electrocoagulation of Acid Blue 113 textile effluent in a batch electrochemical reactor covering wide range in the operating conditions. Experiments were designed using statistical tool of Response Surface Method (RSM) to analyze the combined effect of operating parameters on the efficiency of electro coagulation process. The level of importance of the experimental parameters on the percentage COD removal has been determined by using analysis of variance (ANOVA). Further, the percentage COD removal was also modeled using artificial neural network (ANN).
