EFFICACY OF PLANT BASED REMEDIATION IN SOME PHYSIC() - CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF MATCH INDUSTRY EFFLUENTV. RAMASUBRAMANIAN AND R. jEYAPRAKASH
Plant based remediation is an effective low cost biotechnological tool for cleaning polluted environment. In the present study, the match industry effluent was treated with dried and powdered leaves of Eichornia, Azadiracta and Calotropis sps. After the treatment, the physico-chemical characters were analysed and compared with untreated effluent parameters. It showed substantial changes in the physicochemical characteristics over the untreated effluent and also the heavy metals were found to be absorbed from the effluent by the leaf materials, proving the fact that it is a good low cost bio adsorbant for industrial effluent treatment.
