Kaolin, red clay, alsherqat hospital, lettuce  and Sugar cane


This study aimed to treat the wastewater of Sherqat Hospital in salahaldin city by using mud of (red clay and Kaoline ) the experiments were conducted by using the Jar-Test as laboratory scale . Plants also had a role in reducing pollution indicators and heavy elements and the lettuce plant had a greater impact in reducing pollutants as a clear decrease in heavy elements, including cobalt, selenium and copper after treatment, as it amounted to 12 ,10 and 46.

Many indicators were tested and it was noted that all of them changed at room temperature before and after the treatment through the use of the jar and mud device and it was noted that the red clay was more efficient in reducing the indicators BOD, COD, DO, PH, EC, T.D.S, T.S and they were respectively after the treatment 378,274,6.2,7.4,322,462,253,215,39,29, and 55 while they were very high in the wastewater outcame by the hospital and dumped into the Tigris River without any biological or abiotic treatment.
