Determination of heavy metal levels in various industrial waste waters

Important part of the environmetal pollution consists of waste water and water pollution. The water polluted by anthropogenical, industrial, and agricultural originated sources are defined as waste waters which are the main pollution sources for reservoirs, rivers, lakes, and seas. In this work, waste waters of leather, textile, automotiveside, and metal plating industries were used to determine the levels of Cu, Zn, Cr, Pband Ni by using Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS). As a result, highest mean levels of copper in supernatants of plating and textile industrieswere observed as 377,18ng ml-1, respectively 103ng ml-1lead and 963,6 ng ml-1 nickel in plating industry, 1068,2 ng ml-1zinc and 14557,1ng ml-1chromium in plating and leather industries were determined.
