Water Purification by Hen Feathers and Self Prepared Coconut Shell Carbon and Embed in Bioplastic System Which is Also Made Up of Hen Rachis
Water is an essence of life. Due to various civilization activities and industrialization numerous impurities such
as biological contaminants, salts, heavy metal ions etc. have been introduced in water. These impurities are harmful for
living beings as well as aquatic life. Thus the quality of water is depleting day by day and purification of water is the need of
present day. Though there are several methods to purify water, still lacks the cost effectiveness. Thus, here in we conducted a
study on purification of water which is aimed to remove both biological as well as suspended impurities at cost effective way
by using waste products. Our study deals with the construction of a prototype which works on the principle of adsorption.
