This paper deals with the electrochemical degradation of sugarcane based sugar mill waste water (SMW). The studies on removal of COD of SMW were investigated by using two liter capacity electrolytic batch reactor. Effect of current density on the performance of two electrodes viz. stainless steel and aluminium has been reported in the study. The study was performed by passing 1.67 and 3 amp current through above electrodes. Applied voltage, COD removal efficiency as a function of current density for SS and Al electrodes are observed. Likewise optimal current density as a function of surface area to volume was observed. From this study it is found that CD of 25 A/m2 providing a maximum COD removal of 54.55% having SA/V ratio of 0.06 m2/m3 with ET=20 min was consider appropriate treatment condition with aluminium electrode.
