Research is proposed to determine the feasibility of making a novel non-metallic, dimensionally stable and electrically efficient anode for use in a membrane electrochemical process for the electro-oxidation of chromium III, in process liquors, to useable chromium VI compounds. An efficient economical anode would make possible development and commercial use of an electrochemical process that could eliminate annual production and disposal of several million pounds of chromium III waste, the cost of waste disposal, and the import of chromium, equivalent to the chromium III waste, from Russia and Africa. The novel non-metallic anode could markedly increase the use of electrochemistry in the manufacture of chemicals, chemical processing, and pollution control with potential reductions in cost of the manufacture and waste to the environment.
