Development of Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System for Kitchen Wastewater
Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System (DEWATS) is treatment system in which wastewater is treated at the point of wastewater generation source. This project is mainly focuses on providing low cost treatment at source only project study based on design of DEWATS for department of technology hostel kitchen wastewater. A laboratory scale experiment carried out treating hostel kitchen wastewater using anaerobic baffled reactor (ABR) and horizontal gravel filter (HGF). ABR show 77% removal efficiency for COD, 78% for BOD, TSS is 81%, TDS it is 33%. Also HGF shows removal of BOD is 84%, Chemical oxygen demand (COD) is 72%, TSS is 61%, TDS it is 30%.
