Coagulation/Flocculation with Moringa oleifera and Membrane Filtration for Dairy Wastewater Treatment

Coagulation/Flocculation with Moringa oleifera and Membrane Filtration for Dairy Wastewater... The main objective of the present paper is to evaluate the use of Moringa oleifera (MO) as a natural coagulant in coagulation/flocculation/sedimentation (CFS) followed by the microfiltration (MF) or nanofiltration (NF) process in dairy wastewater treatment, focusing on determining the best association of treatments that can generate wastewater for reuse purposes. The association of CFS-MF-NF treatments showed a high removal efficiency for chemical oxygen demand (COD) (mean of 96%), turbidity, and color (mean of 99%) meeting water reuse standards, allowing the reutilization of the wastewater, in relation to the analyzed parameters. The results indicate a lower membrane fouling rate (63%), an increase in permeate flow, and better quality of the permeate, proving that the CFS-MF-NF treatment is the most suitable among all the tested treatments. Finally, the treated wastewater obtained with this process presents better quality than the wastewater obtained with the conventional treatments. Water, Air, Soil Pollution Springer Journals
