Objective: To study the application of iron carbon internal electrolysis in the treatment of pharmaceutical wastewater from traditional Chinese medicine. Methods: Firstly, the iron-carbon micro electrolytic filler was prepared by drying and distillation method, followed by the reaction investigation method to analyze the treatment effect, and finally, the indicator detection method was used to determine various indicators for the treatment of traditional Chinese medicine wastewater, thereby completing the research on the treatment of traditional Chinese medicine wastewater by iron-carbon internal electrolysis. Results: As the proportion of clay in iron-carbon filler decreases, its treatment effect gradually increases, but the strength of the filler becomes lower and lower. Therefore, based on the comprehensive strength of the filler and the treatment effect of traditional Chinese medicine pharmaceutical wastewater, the initial PH selected for iron-carbon internal electrolysis treatment is 3, and the clay content is 30%. At this time, the treatment effect is optimal. Conclusion: Studying the treatment of pharmaceutical wastewater from traditional Chinese medicine by iron carbon internal electrolysis can effectively improve the treatment efficiency of wastewater, reduce the cost of wastewater treatment, and have certain application value in solving the pollution problem of pharmaceutical wastewater and maintaining the water ecological environment.
