    Paint industry is one of the industries that cause the water pollution by generating Wastewater primarily due to cleaning operations of mixers, reactors, blenders, packing machines and floors. The present research work deals with the study of some of the important physico-chemical and heavy metal parameters of paint industrial waste water effluents which was aimed at the analysis of the untreated effluents from six paint factories in Addis Ababa and the surrounding area. Analysis physico-chemical and heavy metal parameters of selected paint factories samples in Kadisco (KA), Zemilli (ZE), Rainbow (RA), Gastor solar (GA), Nifas silk (NI) and Modern building industry (MBI) were performed to investigate the concentration of status of the parameter. In this study, like; physico-chemical and heavy metal parameters pH, EC, TDS, TSS, COD, Cd, Cr, Pb, and Zn of the nine wastewater samples wer.. Read More»
