Aquatic weed has greater impact on all kind of pollution reduction. Chemical and toxic industries are those which creates heavy pollution load in environment. Globally pesticides are toxic to non-target receptors including humans and reach them through food chain. Most of the pesticides are non-biodegradable due to b their molecular structure with stable internal bonds. Wastewaters from pesticide manufacturing industries originate from cleaning activities after batch operation during the synthesis processes.
