Characteristics of effluent of sugar factory with reference to trace metals
Bharat D Gidde,  Dr Ashok More
Metal concentration in waste water has threat to atmosphere during the 21st century due to its toxicity and non- biodegradable in nature. Heavy metals are strictly regulated and must be treated before being discharged in the environment. Any metals having density greater than 5 g/cm3 is generally considered as heavy metals .Heavy metal concentration in effluent of a sugar industry plays important role in maintaining the ecological balance of the natural streams ,rivers etc .However the sugar mill have a great environmental impact upon the surrounding environment .Many countries in the world are affected by presence of heavy metal in water. Among the various metal arsenic, lead, chromium and zink are found normally available in waste water hence it is necessary to remove it by using proper technology however the treatment process efficiency depends upon time of contaminant and parameter like pH , current density, treatment and etc. This paper illustrates the characteristics of waste water of sugar effluent with respect to trace metals .For this experimentation the samples of effluent were collected before the effluent reaches the effluent treatment plant and after leaving the treatment plant
Keywords- biodegradable , Effluent , pollutants,
