Focuses were placed on effectiveness and factors to affect such novel application of Fenton process. Experiments have demonstrated that considerable improvement of alum sludge dewaterability evaluated by capillary suction time (CST) can be obtained at the relative low concentrations of Fenton reagent. A Box-Behnken experimental design based on the response surface methodology was applied to evaluate the optimum of the influencing variables, i.e. iron concentration, hydrogen peroxide concentration and pH. The optimal values for Fe2+, H2O2, and pH are 21 mg g-1 DS-1(dry solids), 105 mg g-1 DS-1 and 6, respectively, at which the CST reduction efficiency of 48±3 % can be achieved, this agreed with that predicted by an established polynomial model in this study.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2008 Elsevier B.V.||Keywords:||Fenton reaction;Aluminium-based water treatment sludge;Conditioning;Optimization;Response surface methodology;Box-Behnken design||Subject LCSH:||Fenton's reagent
