Treatment of distillery effluent using parabolic trough solar collector coupled with bioprocess

S. Shanmuga Priya, Rashmi Deshpande

Department of Chemical Engineering, Manipal Institute of Technology, Karnataka, India.


Waste water treatment is the most essential unit process in any Industry. Solar detoxification is the one which pre-dominates the entire work because among all the renewable energy sources solar energy has the highest potential. A twin parabolic structured system has been developed and reactor tubes inserted were alternately changed to verify the best type of material for the treatment. The inner surface of each tube is coated with a Polyvinyl Pyrollidine-Titanium dioxide (PVP-TiO2) paste to photocatalyse the process of detoxification. The effluent is further subjected to bacterial degradation and the changes in values of parameters like Total Organic Carbon (TOC), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), pH and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) were observed.

Keywords: distillery effluent, solar parabolic trough reactor, bacillus cereus, TOC level, COD level.
