Bio-Treatment of Flavour Effluent and its Reuse for Growth of Ornamental Plant CHRYSANTHEMUM SP
C. M. Noorjahan | Sheeba Ali Siddiqui
Abstract: An investigation was carried out to propose an useful approach towards the bio-treatment of flavour effluent using fungus and reuse of fungus treated flavour effluent for growth of ornamental plant, Chrysanthemum sp by studying the growth parameters such as shoot length, root length, number of sub roots etc. Aspergillus sp was selected to degrade the untreated flavour effluent. The degradation of 100 % untreated flavour effluent using fungus Aspergillus sp was carried out for a period of 96 hrs, and the bio-treated sample was reused for the growth of ornamental plant, Chrysanthemum sp. The results of analysis of degradation of the effluent revealed that colour and odour of 100 % untreated sample has changed to pale yellow and odorless condition after treatment and the growth rate of ornamental plant, Chrysanthemum sp is increased in bio-treated and control samples compared to untreated sample. The study revealed that native fungus, Aspergillus sp. played a key role in the degradation of untreated flavour effluent and the treated water can be utilized for growth of ornamental plant as evidenced in the present work.
