Abstract

Combined Solar detoxification and biological method has been adopted for treatment of distillery industrial wastewater. Solar detoxification is the one which pre-dominates the entire work because among all the renewable energy sources solar energy has the highest potential. A twin parabolic structured system has been developed and reactor tubes inserted were alternately changed to verify the best type of material for the treatment. The inner surface of each tube is coated with a Polyvinyl Pyrollidine-Titanium dioxide (PVP-TiO2) paste to photocatalyse the process of detoxification. The effluent is further subjected to bacterial degradation and the changes in values of parameters like Total Organic Carbon (TOC), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), pH and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) were observed.
