REMOVAL OF BOD AND ALKALINITY FROM WATER BY SOIL BIOTECHNOLOGYJitendra Patidar, J.K.Shrivastava and Alka Shrivastava
Soil biotechnology (SBT) is a system for water renovation, which makes use of a formulated media process water and wastewater. The present study reports the performance of uncultured soil bioreactor in a laboratory to treat the waste water.This study gives a new approach for contaminant removal from municipal wastewater using constructed soil filter (CSF) in laboratory scale. Results shows pH of the effluent is found to be in natural range (7.8-7.95).The bio-chemical oxygen demand (BOD) reduced from 70 to 20 mg/L with % of removal is around 50 %, and alkalinity reduced from 157 to 122 mg/L with % of removal is around 11%. In this experimental work a constructed soil filter system (CSF) has been configured for the treatment on soil ecosystem for waste water purification.No pretreatment, highremoval efficiency, very low energy requirement. The Sample of wastewater for processing is taken from drainage line at Mahasakti Nagar colony in Ujjain (M.P).
