Acid mine drainage (AMD) treatment leaves residue in the form of sludge that contains large amounts of metal, silica, ferric, and alum. This research aims to determine the capabilities that AMD sludge-synthesized coagulant has in reducing COD and TSS concentration in domestic wastewater. The domestic wastewater sample used in this research is an artificial domestic wastewater with a COD concentration of 285 mg/l and a TSS concentration of 245.31 mg/l. After going through Acidification process, AMD sludge coagulant contains Si (43.66%), Fe (30.02%), dan Al (12.35%). A jar test is then performed in order to determine the optimal coagulant dosage. In this process, a coagulant dosage of 40 mg/; 60 mg/l; 80 mg/l; 100 mg/l; 140 mg/l; 180 mg/l; and 200 mg/l was used with 100 mg/l being the optimal coagulant dosage. The AMD sludge containing the optimal coagulant dosage of 100 mg/l is found to be able to reduce COD concentration by 34.74% and TSS concentration by 95.63% from the tested domestic wastewater sample. This research can illustrate the vast potential that the AMD sludge has as a coagulant.
