Abstract

The number of food centres in urban areas has resulted on the amount of wastewater generated. Most of discharged wastewater is not treated which becomes one of causes of water pollution and sustainable technology is required to treat the wastewater. This research aims to determine the effectiveness of bio-filter in processing wastewater of food centres in urban areas. The bio-filter prototype was designed using 36.6 L glass tubular. Wastewater was flowed from tank A to B at 25 mL/minute with flow rate of 0.24 m/minute. The media used in bio-filter was gravel in diameter of 3 mm, 10 mm, and 0.425 mm. It was observed in the hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 6 hours, 12 hours, and 24 hours. Result showed that bio-filter was effective for wastewater generated from food centres in urban areas. Thus, the effectiveness of TSS removal was 97.19%; BOD was 97.7%; COD was 96.03%; and oil and grease was 99.55%. However, the research did not measure the pH affectivity since it was categorized normal as set by East Java Governor Regulation no. 72 Year 2013
