Increasing urbanization, industrialization and over population is one of the leading causes of environmental degradation and pollution. Aquatic bodies are the traditional recipients of sewage containing heavy contaminants, which are released in higher concentrations and cause deleterious effects on organisms. Phytoremediation, an ecofriendly technology which is both ecologically sound and economically viable is an attractive alternative to the current cleanup methods that are very expensive. Phytoremediation technology is a cost effective one as it utilizes plants natural ability to suck the pollutant present in the water. There are many plants having this natural ability to up take the heavy metals and organic pollutants from air, soil and water. In this project we have treated the sewage coming out after primary treatment using phytoremediation techniques. In this project, the sewage which is taken from the primary treatment unit is further treated using phytoremediation technique that is the mustard plant is used for treating the sewage and thereby reducing the contaminants in wastewater to meet the wastewater disposal standards. Among various phytoremediation techniques phytovolatilization found to be effective in removing the pollutant as BOD, COD, Turbidity, Total dissolved solids, Kjeldahl nitrogen. The phytovolatilization showed the best removal of BOD up to 59.44 , COD up to 60.02 , Turbidity up to 97.83 , Total dissolved solids up to 31.35 , Kjeldahl nitrogen 97.46 . Karthika.
