In this study an attempt was made to use a bio coagulant for treating chicken abattoir waste water. Moringa Oleifera Leaves were used in two different forms- one in the form of Moringa Oleifera Leaves Powder (MOLP) and the other in the form of Activated Carbon prepared from Moringa Oleifera Leaves (MOLAC). Before and after treatment of chicken abattoir wastewater with Moringa Oleifera Leaves Powder and Activated Carbon prepared from Moringa Oleifera Leaves, samples were analyzed for different parameters like turbidity, Total Solids, Total Suspended Solids, BOD, COD, Oil and grease, Total Nitrogen, Electrical Conductivity etc. All parameters were reduced with treatment using Activated Carbon prepared from Moringa Oleifera Leaves. Moringa Oleifera Leaves Powder was also found to be effective in reduction of parameters like turbidity, Oil and grease, Total Nitrogen and Electrical Conductivity. But some parameters like BOD and COD of treated abattoir wastewater was found to be more than the initial values.
