ABSTRACT

 

Many dyestuff and dye intermediates manufacturing industries are small scale and they cannot afford to the treat their effluents individually so they set up CETP. Waste water discharging from dyeing house and dye manufacturing unit contain higher amounts of BOD, COD,TDS and SS which is objectionable to the public for health reason. Treated waste water from CETP reduces the mean level of BOD, more than 93% and COD reduction was 90%, reduction of TDS and SS was 45 and 30% respectively. Mean reduction of phenolic compound, nickel, oil and grease up to 50%, which is below the GPCB permissible limit. In this paper, the crucial role played by CETP for industrial wastewater from dyeing industries situated at Sachin in South Gujarat is taken as a case study. Further, it is emphasized that CETP can help industrial estates towards its sustenance and development.

 

Keywords : CETP, Dyes industries, Effluents, Phenolic compound Waste Water.
