dc.description.abstract The use of coagulation-flocculation process as means of wastewater treatment is gradually becoming more popular. This research work is to evaluate the efficiency of coagulation-flocculation process in the treatment of abattoir effluent. Samples of abattoir effluent were collected from a slaughterhouse at Ede, Nigeria, and Alum was used in the coagulation-flocculation treatment of the effluent. The physico-chemical and bacteriological analyses of the untreated and treated effluent were carried out and these were used in determining the efficiency of the treatment process. The values obtained (from the physico-chemical and bacteriological analyses) were also compared with the effluent standard of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Not coagulation-flocculation process is performed efficiently in reducing the contaminant level of Colour, TDS, Turbidity, Conductivity, TSS, Total Hardness, COD, Coliform, metals and other pollutants from the effluent. en_US
dc.description.abstract Utilizarea procesului de coagulare-floculare ca mijloc de tratare a apelor uzate devine treptat tot mai populară. Această lucrare este axată pe evaluarea eficienței procesului de coagulare-floculare în tratamentul efluentului de la abatoare. Probele de efluent de abator au fost colectate de la un abator din Ede, Nigeria, și Alum a fost utilizat în tratamentul de coagulare-floculare a efluentului. Au fost efectuate analize fizico-chimice și bacteriologice ale efluentului netratat și tratat, care au fost utilizate pentru a determina eficiența procesului de tratare. Valorile obținute (din analizele fizico-chimice și bacteriologice) au fost comparate cu standardele Agenției pentru Protecția Mediului (EPA). Procesul de coagulare-floculare se realizează eficient în reducerea nivelului de contaminanți de culoare, TDS, turbiditate, conductivitate, TSS, duritate totală, COD, coliforme, metale și alți poluanți din efluent. en_US
