Mathiyarasi K, M Maheswari, P Balasubramaniam and S Paul Sebastian
Paper and paper board industry contributes to largest waste water disposal problems all over the world. Yet the effluent contains huge load of organic materials which may end up in soil contributing to increase in soil organic matter contents. The soils which are irrigated with paper and board mill effluent are characterized using FTIR. This shows the dominance of C compounds and sulfur compounds. The results also indicate that the soils have sufficiently high load of organic matter owing to the irrigation by effluents from the board mill industry.
