This informative good practice guide deals with a number of issues faced by operators of paper and board mills, focusing on the optimisation of waste management processes including improving the performance of effluent treatment plant.
A recent study of effluent treatment practices has determined the feasibility of developing a Toolkit for the selection of the best effluent management solutions for specialised organic chemicals manufacturers, especially those with ‘hard COD’ problems.
Wastewater and effluent treatment processes are becoming increasingly important issues for many organisations around the world as they strive to reduce waste, meet increasingly stringent wastewater and effluent discharge consent conditions, and reduce total operating costs.
This technical guide considers the effects of scale on reverse osmosis membranes and plant efficiency and how the use of membrane scale inhibitors can improve overall performance and efficiency.
This short paper looks at the use of reverse osmosis (RO) in process water treatment applications and considers the process itself, the use of reverse osmosis membranes, and factors affecting water quality and plant performance.
This short good practice guide looks at what needs to be considered when undertaking a reverse osmosis plant start-up procedure.
Many industrial processes generate effluent streams that contain a mixture of substances. To reduce the cost of processing these streams, operators can remove the substances that they contain using a range of membrane separation technologies.
Membrane technologies, including the process of reverse osmosis, are becoming increasingly important in many parts of the world where they are used extensively in a variety of applications including the desalination and purification of drinking water.
This short paper covers issues that surround the use of microbes in the removal of toxic waste, in particular, the removal of vinyl chloride and dichloroethene.
This useful article looks at ways of improving water efficiency in the textile and leather industries, where savings of between 20-50% on water and effluent charges may be possible.
