Abstract

Background and purpose: phytoremediation (constructed wetland) is one of the most appropriate technologies for the wastewater treatment. The aim of this study was evaluation of efficiency of the combined anaerobic and phytoremediation systems for sanitary wastewater treatment. Materials and Methods: The experimental study was performed during 9 months to evaluate the important parameters including COD, BOD5, TSS, turbidity, total coliform, and intestinal nematode by combined anaerobic and phytoremediation systems . The samples of wastewater were randomly taken twice per month from the influent and effluent of the septic, wetland and control system. The samples were performed based on both the Bailenger and standard methods for extermination of water and wastewater. The obtained results were compared by the Iranian effluent standards for irrigation. Results: The results showed that by using of the hybrid process of anaerobic and phytoremediation systems, the COD and TSS removal rates were reached nearly to 80% when the turbidity and BOD5 removal rates were reported to be by 90%. The removal efficiencies of total coliform and intestinal nematode were 99.999% and 100%, respectively. In this study, the quality of the treated wastewater was found to be according to the acceptable Iranian effluent standards for irrigation. Conclusion: The combined anaerobic and phytoremediation systems can be used as an efficient process for sanitary wastewater treatment.
