Abstract
The word guano originated from the Quichua language of the Inca civilization and means "the droppings of bat". The bats forage at night for insects over a particular area, and they return to the old temples during the day to sleep and care for their young. They attach themselves to ceiling, and their excrement accumulates on the floor below. In some situations the guano can reach a depth of feet in many years and appeared as guano-hip, and it has a valuable importance. Bat guano was collected from the temple of Lonar crater of Lonar, Buldana District, Maharashtra. The bat guano, it dissolved in water of Purna River, (10:100) concentration was prepared and kept undisturbed till 30 days and parameters was noted at an interval of 2 hour and thereafter 5 days for about 24 hours and 30 days respectively. Resulted into increasing in pH and decline in chloride, nitrate, phosphate and sulphate content of industrial effluent after the addition of bat guano. Our investigation results indicated that bat guano used for degradation of water pollutants and bioremediation of aquatic ecosystem.
