Title: WATER CLARIFICATION/PURIFICATION USING SEEDS OF MORINGA OLEIFERA LAM
Authors: MUHAMMAD, T. ABDULLAHI
Issue Date: Jan-2010
Abstract: Water treatment companies face myriad of problems of which the high cost of water treatment (Chemicals) is a major one To this effect, the work tried to provide an alternative to safe drinking water by using Moringa oleifera seed extract. The raw water was collected from five different locations in Lapai in Niger State, Batagi River (sample A), Danbagi River (sample B), Ndakotsu River (sample C), Etsun Tswaiwa River (sample D) and Rafin Makara River (sample E). The results revealed the seed extract has highest activity for the low turbidity 21 NTU of sample A, 52 NTU of sample B, 21NTU of sample C, 16 NTU of sample D and 20 NTU of sample E and against 25mg/l dosage of moringa respectively. These show that at Difference Rivers, the turbidity gave a better result at sample D which is 16 NTU. Therefore moringa has high coagulation activity for low turbid water while other quality parameters such as colour, conductivity and sulphate fell with in the stipulated standard.
