BALWOIS 2012 - Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia - 28 May, 2 June 20121Effective Microorganisms used in Domestic Effluent Treatment SystemDoraipandian Kannan*, Sindhu Vaishnavi KumarDepartment of Botany, Thiagarajar College, Tamil Nadu, India*[email protected]AbstractCommercially available culture of microorganisms, comprising of 80 different microbial species with the majorgroups ofLactobacillus, photosynthetic bacteria, yeast and ray fungi was used in the recycling of domesticeffluent of grey water collected at Thiagarajar College Campus, Madurai, South India. Effectivemicroorganisms were applied after fermenting the commercial culture as the extended form, using jaggerysolution for the nutrient source and sodium aluminium silicate with the trade name of zeolite as the base toeffect the microbial population growth. These fermented form of bokashi balls were applied in the plant at theprimary treatment stage. Monitoring and water quality analysis revealed that microbial treatmentconsiderably reduced the BOD rate as the applied microbial culture has the ability to survive and functionsboth at the aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Total soluble solids (TDS), alkalinity were also had a profoundbeneficial effect in the treatment process.The microbes antagonized Escherichia coli bacteria population which was known from the reducedpopulation of colic bacteria, following treatment using EM. Unlike adding chlorine in the detoxificationprocess usually done in the conventional methods, effective microorganisms application is a kind ofbioremediation process and its use becomes to an ecofriendly nature and the water treatment has maximumsustainable benefits over the chemical process of treatment. Further applying the EM treated water for thesafe land-filling and irrigation offers improving the plant growth, crop productivity and hence an enormousscope is prevalant from the present study.
