Ecofriendly Decolorisation of Textile Waste Water Using Natural CoagulantsAuthor : P. Sasirekha, S. Shankar Krishna, S. Vembukumar and L. Vignesh
Volume 8 No.2 April-June 2019 pp 41-44
The Process of production of textile or wet treatment and finishing processes of textile materials are huge consumers of water with high quality. As a result of these various processes, considerable amounts of polluted water are released. The project emphasis on the problem of environmental protection against waste water generated by the industry. The selection of the purification method depends on the composition and types of waste water. Plant extracts are used as natural coagulants for decolorizing the dye effluents. Removal of toxic substance from the discharged effluent is paramount. Chemical treatment techniques are effective for color removal but require more energy and expensive than biological process. They contaminate the environment and require additional cost for disposal.
