Abstract

Greywater in Kuningan University comes from bathing, hand washing and washing utensils. The waste is discarded into the environment without going through the treatment stage so that it has the potential to pollute the environment. In this study, we used an environmentally friendly and cost-effective biological treatment method. This method uses eco-enzyme derived from a mixture of brown sugar, pineapple and water in a ratio of 1:3:10 which is fermented for 90 days. The purpose of this study is to determine the characteristics of greywater before and after being treated using eco-enzyme with a concentration of 10% for 5 and 15 days. Results obtained show that the eco enzyme is effective in aerobic conditions with a duration of 15 days after it’s being confirmed in the Regulation of the Minister of Environment and Forestry of the Republic of Indonesia Number: P.68/Menlhk/Setjen/Kum.1/8/2016 concerning domestic waste quality standards. Further research is needed to find a more appropriate dose of eco enzyme so that the BOD and COD content of greywater which discarded into the environment meets environmental standards.
