Abstract

In this study, the capability of Vetiver zizaniodes in removing the pharmaceutical-based product, naproxen from wastewater was evaluated. The plant was exposed to naproxen at concentrations ranging from 50, 100, 300 and 500 mgL-1 for duration up to 56 days. Several wastewater parameters including pH, dissolved oxygen (DO, mgL-1) and oxygen-reduction potential (ORP, mV) were recorded during the experimental runs where pH and ORP exhibited significant different (p < 0.05). At the end of the exposure, 81.5%, 64.5% and 60.9% of naproxen were removed at 100, 300 and 500 mgL-1 concentration, respectively. The interaction between time, system and concentration showed significant naproxen removal (p < 0.05) from water and soil. Phytostimulation and phytostabilization played a major role for naproxen removal when there was an activity of the bacteria presence in the soil around the roots of the plants. Hence, V. zizaniodes is a potential plant in remediating pharmaceuticalcontaminated water and could act as a phytoremediator plant.
