Investigation on wastewater characteristic from industrial wastewater treatment plant

Environmentally Friendly Industrial for Sustainable Development, Department of Technology and Ecology, Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies
Place of stay: Mahidol University, Thailand
Term: December 4, 2012 – December 27, 2012
This study focuses on the PFCs and the other characteristics of industrial wastewater treatment plant in industrial estate, Thailand. Wellgrow, Ladkabang and Bangplee industrial estate were selected for study. In each industrial zones, a variety of types of industries were located in the area including electronics, chemical, automobile, plastic, personal health care product, etc., which have the potential of releasing PFCs. There are 144, 198 and 149 factories in Wellgrow, Ladkabang and Bangplee industrial estate respectively. All industries discharge their wastewater into the central WWTP of each industrial zone. I collected wastewater from each point by grab sampling. Two samples were collected each time for duplication. New 1.5 L narrow-neck polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles with screw caps were used as sampling containers. PET bottles were washed by methanol and dried prior to use. I measured TOC, SS, turbidity, PFCs, ions and heavy metal of filtrated wastewater. The internship gave me an opportunity to investigate the characteristics of industrial wastewater, Thailand.
