THE USE OF PLANTS FOR PURIFICATION OF WASTEWATER FROM PHARMACEUTICAL FACTORIES

Based on literary analysis, the effectiveness of a range of plants (aquatic: Lemna aoukikusa, Lemna minor, Spirodela polyrhiza, Lemna aequinoctialis; vetiver grass Chrysopogon zizanioides) for the purification of wastewater from antibiotics has been investigated. It has been found that the removal efficiency for various types of antibiotics and their concentrations reaches 70 percent or more. This suggests the potential application of these aquatic plants for phytoremediation of wastewater containing antibiotic contaminants.
