Abstract

It is necessary to find low cost solutions to treat cassava wastewater tailored to the social and economic level of the industries to avoid dumping into rivers or on the soil, causing serious environmental impact. In this paper, the case study refers to processes soft drinks, generating a daily average of 280KLD of wastewater. The aim of this work is to introduce the EM technology for the reduction of hydrochloric acid consumption, power consumption, introduction of beneficial bacteria into the system & the microbiological adjustment of the wastewater treatment plant, reduce the quantity of sludge, physico-chemical parameters and reduce over all ETP running cost. There was no requirement of HCl, urea & DAP with significant reduction in MLSS. Average BOD3 removal was about 92%, arriving 96%, with a minimum value of 6 mg/L in the final effluent, demonstrating that EM technology is efficient and feasible. The present work highlights the process and successes achieved by this system in wastewater management at low cost and with a high degree of success.
