The wastewater generated from multi-fold industrial estates is complex in nature because of the variability in the process system producing organic and inorganic load in the wastewater. These industries pollute water by discharging the wastewater containing large number of organics and other color causing compounds. Hence the area of interest is detection of wastewater components. Analytical methods such as FTIR and GC-MS have been used for the characterization of wastewater. The result achieved in the present investigation using GC-MS and FTIR study of sample confirms the presence of organics in wastewater. Efforts therefore have to be made provide some specific treatment employing advanced treatment methods/processes to improve the quality of wastewater to before discharging in the environment.
