The removal of organic matter from the restaurant wastewater was investigated using the electrochemical oxida-tion method with multi carbon electrodes in a parallel construction. The degradation process was monitored by the measurement of COD concentration as a function of electrolysis time. The effectof operating parameter conditions on COD removal were investigated including initial pH, distance between electrodes, and the applied voltage difference.The results showed that the treatment of restaurant wastewater containing 2 g/L chloride ion using the electrochemical oxidation technique at the operation conditions characterized by: pH 5, distance between electrode of 10 cm and applied voltage of 12 V, enabled to obtained COD removal of 92.84% within 90 min electrolysis time. It is can be concluded that the indirect electrochemical oxidation method with multi carbon electrodes can be used effectivelyas an alternative technology for reducing COD and may be potentially applied for removal organic pollutants from wastewater at the industrial scale.
