Use of Phytoremediation for the Treatment of Kitchen Wastewater

Neharika S. Chandekar | Buddharatna J. Godboley [4]

Abstract: The wastewater is contaminated with many impurities therefore it is necessary to treat the wastewater. The wastewater is generated from canteen, restaurant and household kitchen are also potential pollutant. The water pollution in India is a major problem as 70 % of surface water and ground water are contaminated by chemicals, organic and inorganic, biological and toxic contaminants. The aim of this project is to study the efficiency of phytoremediation in treatment of kitchen wastewater. It is a more effective and sustainable alternative for conventional waste water treatment technologies. In this paper we are analyze the performance of Phytoremediation for removal of pollutants such as Total suspended solid (TSS), Chemical oxygen demand (COD), Biological oxygen demand (BOD), Total dissolved solid (TDS) of kitchen wastewater at 1day Hydraulic retention time from the kitchen wastewater as plants play a great role in the removal of pollutants. This study will give the eco-friendly method and less cost of Maintence and operation. It reveals that proper treatment of kitchen wastewater can lead to higher profitability for restaurant and save environmental pollution

Keywords: kitchen, Wastewater, pollutants, Phytoremediation, BOD, COD, TSS, TDS, Removal efficiency, HRT
