Physico-chemical and Trace Metal Characterization of Battery Factory Wastewater

A. Akinlua and O.I. Asubiojo

Abstract:
The physico-chemical and trace metal analyses of battery factory wastewater were carried out in this study. Samplings were done three times in a period of nine months at settling tank (i.e., before treatment) and at final discharge point (after treatment). High levels of pH, conductivity, Pb, Fe and Zn were observed, which may affect the health of the aquatic ecosystem of the receiving river. The high levels of conductivity, Pb, Fe and Zn may also adversely affect the health of the community that uses the receiving river directly for domestic use without treatment. The treatment technique employed by the factory is grossly ineffective for the removal of Pb, Fe and Zn but effective for removal of Cu and Cd.
