Abstract

In this study, treatment of palm oil mill effluent (POME) was conducted using aluminium sulphate using jar test experiment. Jar test experiment was conducted using one factor at a time (OFAT) approach, which manipulates one factor at a time in order looking for the best or optimum value for each factor. Experiment using OFAT approach was conducted on 18 runs for each coagulant 3 times replication. F aluminium sulphate, the lowest colour obtained was 120 (ADMI) at 6.0 pH, coagulant dosage of 6ml at 30% molarity and flocculants dosage of 6ml at 0.5% molarity . The effectiveness of colour removal using alum is 92%. The economic importance from this study are at-the price of alum at RM3437.28 per day, polymer RM130.20 per day and the total to treat the palm oil mill effluent are RM3567.48.
