Analysis of the Effectiveness of Cow Dung Ash in the Purification of Water

Priyanka Sinha [3] | Bhakti Patel


Abstract: Cow dung ash is an eco - friendly and inexpensive adsorbent for the purification of water from its pollutants and contaminants. By the analysis of the effect of cow dung ash in various parameters of water, maximum reduction obtained for Hardness was at the dosage of 8 gm/litre, for Turbidity was at the dosage of 4 gm/litre, for COD as well as BOD was at the dosage of 6 gm/litre. Hence it can be concluded that the optimum dosage was 6 gm/litre. The cow dung ash is somewhat less feasible for disinfection of water samples. The efficacy of cow dung ash cannot not be stated in this aspect and valid conclusions could hereby not be drawn as no distinguishable results were obtained in bacterial culture in terms of number of enumerable colonies. The contact time of 24 hours between sample and the ash was although feasible and maximum so as to allow for adsorption to occur efficiently. Cow dung ash exhibits good potential as an adsorbent in the purification and treatment of water.
