Title: Use of aquatic macrophytes in treating electronics manufacturing wastewater in Guadalajara, Mexico

Abstract

This paper discusses an industrial wastewater treatment project performed by Kleinfelder Mexico for an electronics manufacturer located in Guadalajara, Mexico. The industrial wastewater had a moderately high concentration of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), total suspended solids (TSS), and grease and oil. Metals concentration was low, with only zinc exceeding regulatory standards. The use of aquatic macrophytes (namely Eichhornia crassipes) was considered along with conventional wastewater treatment options. An aquatic macrophyte wastewater treatment system was found to have numerous advantages over a conventional extended aeration package plant. These advantages include less required capital, an appreciation of investment, and lower operations and maintenance costs.
