Anaerobic Peat Moss Water Treatment (A.p.w.t)

Authors: Ahmed Ibrahim Mohamed Ahmed, Mohamed Yehia Zakaria Arafa, Shady Essam Ramzy Taodharos

Clear water and food supply are the base of a chain of issues that face the whole world. Hunger, malnutrition and high rate of death are all consequences of the main challenge, as 1.2 billion person suffer from hunger all over the world. The main challenge of the project is improving irrigation process by providing clear water suitable for irrigation, modifying both the irrigation system and the plants to increase the production. Purifying Sewage water by Down flow Anaerobic Peat moss Blanket (DAPB), using a modified drip irrigation system and inserting “Gibberellin” hormone for increasing the rate of the plant growth are believed to be useful solutions to achieve the main challenge. The project produces more amount of crops with higher efficiency and a little cost, so it meets the design requirements of any project (Production, efficiency and cost). The prototype of the project represents the water treatment process (Anaerobic Treatment) and tests the percentage of the purification of water (The efficiency). The results showed that the treated water TDS was less than 1000 mg/l (ppm) when it was measured by TDS Meter, so it is suitable for irrigation. In conclusion, test results showed that this project is the perfect solution to the challenge addressed.
