Removal of Chromium & Lead Using Water Hyacinth and Bio-Sorbents

Aashish Sanjeev Medhe | Adesh Bamb | Priyobarta Singh | Prof. Swati Shegane


Abstract: There are two main types of water pollution sources, firstly Domestic and second Industrial. Stationary sources such as power plans, oil refineries, industrial units and factories pollute the river water introducing some heavy metals which are not acceptable. According to the survey; Nashik is facing major problems related to heavy metals introduced in river water compared to other cities. Heavy metals introduced in river water get percolated in the nearby soil, polluting the soil with harmful metals. When vegetables grown in this soil are consumed by the people, they face problem like Kidney Failure, Neurological Damage, Dental Amalgam, Severe Cancer related to skin, Mental Retardation etc. This genetic problem occurs due to heavy metals like Cadmium, Lead, Chromium, Arsenic etc. present in the soil introduced by polluted water. These heavy metals are treated with Phyto-remediation and by using some Bio-sorbents. Results using water hyacinth and bio-sorbents will be compared in the end and the result which is more satisfactory will be considered.
