Waste water is defined as source of household, industrial, agricultural, mines and similar areas. This water should be brought under the limits specified by the law of some parameter values before being discharged into the natural environment (1). At this point, waste water treatment methods are taken an important role. The preferred method must be economical, fast and friendly of against the environment. These aims are caused by electrocoagulation methods in wastewater treatment process is very useful.

In present study, we examined to recovery of different heavy metals from synthetic waste water using electrocoagulation technique with using aluminum electrodes. The effect of different metal types were examined during the experiments. With this aim; different metal solutions of Cd, Zn and Co metals’ solutions were used in electrocoagulation cell.
