Abstract

Sugar industries have an essential place in Indian economic development. However, the waste water generated from these industries poses a significant threat to the environment as well as irrigated land. If untreated effluents are used in irrigation, they might contaminate food crops and, if they are released into water bodies, they might also be dangerous to the survival of the aquatic ecosystem. The Physico-chemical characteristics of the content in the effluents from Sri Cham Sugars Private Limited, Bharathi nagara Sugar mill have been explored. Physico-chemical characteristics included color, odor, temperature, pH, BOD, COD, TDS, TS, DO, Chloride, Sulphate, Nitrate, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, oil and grease, Electrical conductivity of the effluent collected from the different sites at discharge point in different months have been determined.
