Abstract

The character of wastewater generated by an industrial laundry is a function of the customer group served. The typical industrial laundry provides garments and dust control products to the heavy manufacturing industries, the electroplating and automotive industries, battery manufacturers, the service industries, newspapers, printers, auto garages, schools, commercial and retail businesses. This paper will describe the optimization of the treatment system through laboratory-scale testing of the following processes: 1) ultrafiltration; 2) activated carbon adsorption; and 3) pretreatment by coagulation and sedimentation. It will also describe the results of a pilot-plant study used to test the technical, economic, and practical efficacies of the system developed.
