“Innovations and new technologies for heavy metal removal in industrial effluents”
Wastewater is a resource that is too valuable to throw away, especially in an increasingly water-scarce world. Wastewater from large cities is often pumped directly into rivers or seas without treatment, leading to pollution and posing a threat to the health of ecosystems and people. Metals, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, chromium and arsenic can have acute and chronic toxic effects on species. Other substances such as some pharmaceutical and personal care products, primarily entering the environment in wastewater effluents, may also pose threats to human health, aquatic life and wildlife. Water treatment reduces the volume of waste that is released into the ecosystem. When wastewater is treated, the quantity of waste that is released into the environment is cut down significantly resulting into overall improvement in the environment’s status. Waste water treatment is the need of the hour to reduce pollution and protect the environment.
JIT sustainability cell in association with IIC has organised a seminar on “Innovations and new technologies for heavy metal removal in industrial effluents” on 25.08.2022 at Sivaganga Auditorium. Dr.N.Muthulakshmi Andal, Assistant Professor, PSGR Krishnammal College for Women, delivered the technical speech.
