PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL FACTORS FOR THE SUCCESSFUL RECYCLING OF INDUSTRIAL LAUNDRY WASTEWATER USING ADVANCED MEMBRANE SYSTEMS
Abstract:The recycling of industrial wastewaters from water intensive industries such as industrial laundries has long been attempted via a variety of treatment methods. The cost-effectiveness of such recycling is weighed against the cost of water and sewer disposal. This paper addresses the key physical and chemical factors involved in the recycling of laundry wastewater using ceramic microfiltration membranes operating at high flux rates. The performance of several full-scale systems is reviewed to determine the success or failure of these systems under various operating conditions. Targets are developed for successful system design.
