Abstract:

Textile industries are one of the most potential pollutants to the environment and human health. These industries discharge large volume of waste water which is characterized by high BOD, COD, turbidity, suspended solids, dissolved solids, sulphide, chloride, chromium, animal hairs, epidermic fats and other bio-contaminants. Usually these untreated effluents are treated by the current commercial synthetic coagulant such as ferrous sulphate, aluminium sulphate (alum), poly aluminium chloride which is harmful for livelihood. Natural coagulants are organic based coagulant that can be used in coagulation stage of waste water treatment to reduce turbidity, colour and organic matters. Based on the experimental results, it was concluded that natural coagulants which have been obtained from Moringa oleifera, Azadiratchta indica have shown improved performance of coagulation comparing to commercial alum. The COD and BOD reduction for textile effluent were 68.67 % and 73.33 %. It is also observed that among the two natural coagulants the maximum reduction was observed in Moringa oleifera.
