Chloride Removal from Wastewater by Biosorption with the Plant Biomass (Research Article)


Chlorides are the natural substances which are found in the water bodies in varying amounts. However, their concentrations are significantly low. However, the industrial, domestic and agricultural waste waters that are generated from the human society may contain large amount of chlorides, which can cause significant disruption in the ecological balance. Many techniques have been adopted in order to reduce the amount of chlorides in waste water like demineralization, reverse osmosis, coagulation, precipitation, electrodialysis and so on. However, these techniques are physico – chemical in nature, and are cost consuming capital cost wise as well as maintenance cost wise. Therefore, the following paper makes an effort towards putting forth a biological alternative for the removal of chlorides from waste water. The  present paper studies the suitability of Parthenium sp. as a sorbent for chloride removal. Further, variations in the efficiency of biosorption with respect to different pH, concentration and time were studied. The paper  concluded that Parthenium sps. dried biomass is capable of achieving upto 40% reduction in the chloride content at Lab scale.
