Performance study of the existing wastewater treatment plant of the Lifeline Feeds Pvt.Ltd and the treatability study of the wastewater were conducted from Feb 10th to April 21st, wastewater samples were collected for the present study from 6 predetermined stations. These samples were analyzed for water quality parameters. For the characterization of the incoming wastewater to the existing treatment plant, influent samples were collected from the existing treatment plant. The study revealed that approximately 100KL/day of wastewater is entering into the treatment plant every day and its pH is maintained in the beginning only. Its average composition for BOD, COD, TDS, TSS and Cl was found to be 320.69mg/L,790.48mg/L,1169.72mg/L,807.33mg/L,242.16mg/L respectively, it has been reduced to 31.4mg/L, 145.576mg/L, 421.366mg/L,86.99mg/L, and 194.67mg/L respectively. The maximum reduction 98.78% was observed in COD followed by BOD, TSS, TDS and then Cl which is 93.48%, 92.27%, 83.73%, 34.38% respectively. Above reduction indicates that removal efficiency ranges between 34.38 % to 98.78 % which is quite high.
