Remazol Brilliant Blue is a dye waste mostly generated by the textile industry and can be very dangerous to the environment. Plasma electrolysis is a method that can produce hydroxyl radicals in large quantities in order to degrade the dye compounds. This study aims to test the ability of plasma electrolysis method to degrade Remazol Brilliant Blue wastewater using NaCl as electrolyte, with the addition of Fe2+ ion and air injection. Before the degradation process was carried out, permanganometric test was performed to see the production of hydroxyl radicals with the variations of electrolyte concentration and voltage. The degradation process were investigated more specifically by looking at the effect of Fe2+ ion concentration and the initial concentration of Remazol Brilliant Blue. Remazol Brilliant Blue degradation reached 98.5% in 30 minutes where the initial concentration of Remazol Brilliant Blue is 100 ppm, voltage of 750 V, NaCl concentration 0.03 M,with the addition of 40 ppm Fe2+ ion and air injection. The results show that plasma electrolysis with NaCl as electrolyte using air injection has a good potential in degrading dye wastewater in the environment.
