Abstract

Today, water crisis is the one of the important issues to be addressed, in order to face the water crisis water management, effective wastewater treatment is essential. The main issue is the scarcity and quality. RO plants are commercially available but due to cost and reliability of power, it is not penetrated in rural areas and in industries. The viable unit for rural areas is less cost and non-dependent grid operation of the unit. The paper aims in developing solar which will treat wastewater from various industries like dairy industries and household kitchen waste. The proposed solar still can be fabricated locally which will increase the employability of rural youths. The composition of organic microbes present before and after pasteurization is computed, the TDS, conductivity, DO and pH of water are calculated and water is reused for various activities based on its calculated value. Also, all wastewater having chemical component will be recovered and reused.
