WASTEWATER TREATMENT BY USING A NATURAL COAGULANT EXTRACTED FROM BANANA’S PSEUDOSTEM

The project “treatment of wastewater effluents by natural coagulant made of pseudo stem tannin” is based on the use of tannin extracted from the sap of stem to clarify and settle unwanted colloidal particles, present in effluents, so that it contributes to the environmental health.

El proyecto se fundamenta en la utilización del tanino extraído de la savia del tallo de plátano con el fin de clarificar y sedimentar las partículas coloidales en los efluentes y contribuir con el cuidado del medio ambiente. La ventaja fundamental en la utilización de coagulantes naturales, radica en el hecho de sustituir diversos productos químicos que en la actualidad son utilizados en detrimento de la naturaleza. En este caso se ha utilizado como materia prima los pseudotallos (Musa paradisiaca) para la extracción de la savia, aprovechando su alto nivel de concentración. En la industria bananera los pseudotallos son considerados como desechos después de cosechar el fruto, esto constituye la esencia del proyecto, ya que se ha encontrado una oportunidad para utilizar una materia prima desechada para la elaboración de un producto ecoamigable. Por lo tanto, este proyecto es la respuesta para detener la gran contaminación en los ríos y lagos producto de los procesos industriales, propiciando un medio ambiente más saludable y una mejor calidad de vida para los ciudadanos. 2015-08-01 2017-07-27T14:22:27Z 2017-07-27T14:22:27Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion http://revistas.utp.ac.pa/index.php/ric/article/view/350 http://ridda2.utp.ac.pa/handle/123456789/151 spa http://revistas.utp.ac.pa/index.php/ric/article/view/350/344 http://revistas.utp.ac.pa/index.php/ric/article/view/350/html info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 application/pdf text/html Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá Revista de Iniciación Científica; Vol. 1, Núm. 1 (2015): Revista de Iniciación Científica; 51-55 2413-6786 2412-0464
