Abstract

Municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) fly ash is internationally categorized into a hazardous waste due to its high content of heavy metals (HMs) and dioxins. A traditional electrochemical platform was intrinsically modified by changing stackings of samples in the electrolyzer to solve a near-anode concentration focusing (NA-CF) phenomenon during the electrokinetic remediation (EKR) and to improve electrokinetic performance to the HM removals from MSWI fly ashes. The effect of sample stacking in the electrolyzer on the removal performance of the electrokinetics was comprehensively investigated. Summarily, the stacking styles profoundly affected the electrochemical environment. The excava..
