TREATMENT OF REAL TEXTILE WASTEWATER IN SINGLE STAGE AND MICROALGAE–BACTERIA CONSORTIUM: International Conference on Energy, Water and Environment

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

Unchecked disposal of textile wastewater (TWW) into water bodies is causing eutrophication. Textile wastewater is a cheap source for the cultivation of microalgae and bacteria, as it contain essential nutrients (inorganic and organic) and different type of dyes (carbon source). In the current study nutrients nitrate (NO3-), phosphate (PO₄³⁻) and COD (Chemical oxygen demand) were removed from textile wastewater by using microalgae alone, and microalgae and bacterial consortium. The consortium of microalgae and bacteria showed maximum nutrient and COD (Chemical oxygen demand) removal as compare to the microalgae alone. The consortium of microalgae and bacteria proved highly effective in textile wastewater treatment.
