Ferrate (Fe (VI)) is a potential water treatment chemical due to its dual functions as an oxidant and a subsequent coagulant/precipitant as ferric hydroxide. Hence, an application of Fe (VI) to wastewater could achieve both oxidative elimination of various micro pollutants and reduction in the COD, BOD, Total hardness, Chloride, Fluoride can be achieved. The aim of this study was to assess the potential of Fe (VI) to oxidize selected micro pollutants and remove phosphate during enhanced treatment of municipal waste water in a single treatment step. The waste water from pond in K.R Puram, Bangalore is treated with powerful eco-friendly oxidizing agent Fe(VI){0.005mg/L}, the parameters such as, COD, BOD,TSS, Total hardness, chloride, phosphate, ammonia, cyanide etc. are measured before and after treatment. The reduction in the COD, BOD, Total hardness, Phosphate, Ammonia, Cyanides are observed.
