The present invention provides a novel composite biogenic flocculant using non-hazardous and low-cost commercially available chemicals, naturally occurring microbes and renewable waste materials. The composite biogenic flocculant greatly improves the sludge dewaterability and can be used in wastewater treatment.
Chemically-enhanced primary treatment (CEPT) process has been implemented as an alternative treatment process to the conventional process for domestic sewage. The CEPT process is either too expensive or poses ecological hazards. The present invention aims at solving issues related to wastewater treatment facilities by using biogenic flocculants.
