With a pipette, 1 L of water was taken from the water sample, by adding a flocculant to it and stirring it rapidly (200 stirs for 1 minute).
The test with flocculant addition showed a larger drainage amount and a faster drainage rate than that without flocculant.

"After our lab tests, we could provide a single-source flocculant that is far more cost-effective in treating at the top of the tank for clear water overflow, while also treating at the bottom to allow the sludge to dewater more quickly," said Lamb.
[3] classified flocculants used in wastewater treatments as chemical coagulants/flocculants, natural bioflocculants, and grafted flocculants.

In Figure 11(a), it revealed that the initial zeta potential of the E1 wastewater was negative and the value was -6.9 mV before the addition of the flocculant. In this condition, the E1 colloid was very stable in the wastewater under the electrostatic repulsion and it was difficult to be removed without any treatment.
