Water is an essential part of all living organisms. In this connection water plays a most valuable and important role in the natural cycle. Among the whole water availability, only 3 fresh water is available on the earth. In the available fresh water sources, entries of pollutants have been significantly increased from industries and domestic/anthropogenic activities. In this scenario the conservation strategies plays an important role in the conservation of fresh water bodies as well as water quality. Huge quantity of fresh water will be consumed for the production process which will be held in the industry. In the mean while the amount of consumption of fresh water is equal to the amount of discharge of wastewater as effluent. In this aspect the present study pointed out the pollutants concentration in the sugar industry effluent. Once determine the concentration of pollutants in the effluents, the wastewater treatment system can also be modified as per the modern technology to remove the maximum concentration of pollutants in the wastewater. As per the CPCB direction every industry should adopt the Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) in their industry premises to avoid discharge of effluent without treatment. In the present study the influent and effluents was analysed of a sugar industry and revealed that the pollutant concentration was comparatively high and by adopting the Biological treatment process with Activated Sludge Process (SAP) the treatment efficiency looks better treatment for the wastewater released by sugar industry. The analysed parameters of the treated effluent are well within the prescribed by the CPCB for the discharge of effluent to on-land standards and discharged wastewater could be used for the agriculture purposes or any domestic purposes in the industry.
