Dairy industry is the one of the pollution food industry and considering huge amount of water is used during production of milk and its products. The waste water contains dissolved sugars, proteins, and fat which is biodegradable and organic in nature. So that dairy waste water is considered as high concentration of organic matter and high BOD. It is estimated that dairy industries generate 2.5 to 3 litres of waste water per litre of milk processed. Such untreated waste water pollutes land and

The aim of present research work is to determine behaviour of various parameters of dairy waste water. An investigation of possible use of low cost natural adsorbents in their powdered form like rice husk, curry leaf, orange peel, neem leaf and rice husk in the treatment of dairy waste water. After conducting the experiments we found that the COD, BOD, Turbidity and pH of the dairy waste water is reduced.
