Treatment Using Natural Coagulants},
  author={A. Joaquin and G. Nirmala and P. Kanakasabai},
  journal={Polish Journal of Environmental Studies},
The studies on utilization of natural coagulants prepared from seeds of Citrullus lanatus (watermelon) and Cucumis melo (cantaloupe) provide insight on sewage wastewater treatment. The results were statistically analyzed by response surface methodology (RSM) based central composite design (CCD), and supported with results from Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy for functional groups present in coagulants. The batch coagulation studies were performed varying process parameters such… Expand
