Abstract: The preparation and performance of a Ti/IrO2–RuO2–TiO2 anode in the removal of chemical oxygen demand (COD) from biochemically treated landfill leachate by the Fered-Fenton process were investigated. The Taguchi design was applied to obtain the optimal conditions for preparation of the Ti/IrO2–RuO2–TiO2 anode by thermal decomposition method. The optimal preparation conditions were as follows: Ir and Ru molar contents of 20% and 30%, respectively, a calcine temperature of 500 °C and a precursor solvent of HCl + butyl alcohol. After a 50-min Fered-Fenton treatment, 77.9% of the COD was removed from biochemically treated leachate using the electrode prepared under the optimal conditions derived from the Taguchi method.
