Aim: Industrial wastewater effluent is commonly treated with sand bed based filtration to remove suspended particles and colloids. A solo system, on the other hand, will leave behind soluble organic molecules in industrial effluent as a novel filtration bed. The adsorption affinity and capability of nanoparticles toward the removal of suspensions from a locally provided industrial wastewater sample were investigated in a batch mode through adsorption studies. Material and methods: It is our goal in this current application not only to raise the effectiveness of suspended solids removal but also to increase sand surface area by integrating functionalized green produced copper oxide-based nanoparticles into it. At the macro-level, these types of nanoparticles are made of eco-friendly, naturally occurring materials. There are two groups, each with six samples with G power 80% and coincidence interval of 95%. Results and Discussion: The results showed that employing functionalized sand with copper oxide nanoparticles at a modest mass fraction (5 wt %) improved suspension removal efficiency by 66 %. After that, the filter bed column was run in continuous mode with functionalized and non-functionalized sands, p=0.05. Conclusions: Unexpectedly, the breakthrough time of the functionalized sand using in-house generated copper oxide-based nanoparticles was 50 times greater than that of the un-functionalized sand in this study. According to the researchers, these promising innovative discoveries will improve current traditional methods of wastewater treatment both in the lab and in industry as novel filtration beds.
