Water pollution is a serious problem in Malaysia and impacts negatively on the sustainability of water resources. It reduces total water availability considerably as the cost of treating polluted waters is too high and in some instances, polluted waters are not treatable for consumption. There are several causes of water pollution such as disposal of rubbish, industrial waste, oil pollution, radioactive waste, underground storage leakages and marine that can disseminate the quantity suspended solid in water. Nowadays, this untreated water that consist of suspended solid (SS), heavy metals and chemical waste need to give an attention from responsible parties or the industries themselves. Therefore, the main objective of the experiment which is to produce high filtration efficiency with additional nanofiber with varied electrospinning time. The project was carried out in order to compare the incorporated electrsopun nanofiber with existing water filter in terms of Suspended Solid (SS). The incorporated filters were then used to filter the collected industrial waste water samples according to European Standard EN 872, Water Quality: Determination of Suspended Solids To reach the main objective of this experiment, there are several testing approaches in order to evaluate the efficiency of filtration. First of all, the TSS retentions was manually calculated by differences weight of filter samples after and before in weight percentage. Next, was by using calorimeter device to measure the concentration of suspended solid in the filtered samples. Then, the average diameter is analyzed using Image J after SEM process completely conducted. As a result, the presence of nylon 6 is elctrospun nanofibers significantly improved the capability of filters compared to conventional filter paper.
