A NEW ECO-FRIENDLY METHOD FOR REMOVAL OF COLOUR FROM PULP MILL EFFLUENTS
The present investigation is aimed to reduce organic load could due to the presence of lignin content in the Rayon Factory Effluents. An attempt has been therefore made to develop a new and low cost, ecofriendly method. This new method was named as Kakatiya Electro Cluster (KEC) method, which is based on the principle of Electro Chemistry. In the present study the operating variables studied were TSS, TDS, BOD, COD, Colour and TS, the results were tabulated. After series of trials made with this method it was found that there was a significant reduction in TSS, TDS, BOD, COD, Colour and TS values which indicates that the efficacy of the method in removal of colour content of the effluents caused due to the presence of lignin and organic load is considerably reduced in the effluents. It is proposed that this method has a greater potential and cost effective method to treat the pulp mill effluents.
