Assessment of Suitability of Distillery Liquid Effluent for End use Applications
P.V.S. Machiraju, G.V. Siva Prasad, T. Vara Prasad and D. Rama Rao

Abstract:
The present study is aimed to characterize the liquid effluent generated from a distillery industry to assess its suitability for application. The parameters analyzed include pH, EC, TDS, Total Hardness, Calcium, Magnesium hardness, Total alkalinity, Chloride, Fluoride, nitrite, Nitrate, Phosphate, Sulphate, Ca+2, Mg+2, DO, COD, BOD and TOC. The pH is observed to be 7.5. The levels of EC, TDS, Chloride, Sulphate, Phosphate, Hardness, COD and BOD are on the higher side of the permissible limits of irrigation, aquaculture and drinking water standards. Total organic carbon is abnormally high, indicating extensive organic carbon load in waters. The results revealed that liquid effluent is contaminated and not suitable for drinking purposes, which needs further treatment even for employing it for irrigation purposes.
