Abstract
::
Kitchen wastewater (KWW) is a type of grey wastewater that has garnered significant attention due to the presence of organic pollutants and oil and grease. Eutrophication in water bodies and chocking of sewer lines are common hazardous impacts due to KWW. The study showed that for RSC and PI indices, the KWW needs to be treated for sustainable reuse. For better decision making of KWW reuse in irrigation, the output of Mamdani fuzzy inference system (MFIS) was compared with the USSL (1954) classification system. Overall agreement between USSL (1954) and MFIS was found to be 55.6% for KWW. Hence, there is a need for raw KWW treatment. In this study, the phytoremediation method using Eichhornia crassipes (EC) was used for KWW treatment because of its low-cost. This study can be beneficial for reducing the wastewater handling problem and solving the demand for freshwater.
