Abstract

This work aims to investigate the application of Cicer arietinum as an innovative coagulant for water
clarification. Its coagulation ability for water clarification was demonstrated by treating lake water
at average NTU of 146. Cicer arietinum was dried and ground to obtain uniform size of 500 µm. To
achieve high turbidity removal from the polluted water, several parameters were studied including
coagulant dosage, stirring speed and rapid mixing time. The turbidity removal, T(%), was
determined using turbidity meter to track the suspended solids that have been coagulated with Cicer
arietinum protein. Maximum turbidity removal (52.74%) was recorded by using 12 mg/L of
coagulant at speed of 120 rpm for 4 mins. Additionally, the usage of Cicer arietinum as coagulant
has hardly change the wastewater pH.
