Abstract
A NEWLY DISCOVERED MEMBRANE-LIKE-MATERIAL OFFERS A WAY TO PRE-TREAT INDUSTRIAL LAUNDRY WASTE WATER, CONTAINING OILS, SOLVENTS, AND GREASES TO ABOVE 15, 000 PPM, TO REMOVE THE BULK OF THESE CONTAMINANTS, SO THAT OTHER PROCESSES CAN THEN BE USED TO PRODUCE RE-CYCLE QUALITY WATER. THESE WASTES HAVE ANY CONTAMINANT THAT CAN APPEAR IN THE SYSTEM FROM THE USE OF WIPERS, MATS, UNIFORMS, FILTER BAGS, ETC. AND CAUSE SEVERE COD LOADING ON MUNICIPAL WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANTS. A SECOND TECHNOLOGY, ALREADY DEVELOPED, CALLED DIRECT NUCLEATE FLOTATION (DNF) CAN REDUCE THE DISS OLVED PLUS SUSPENDED SOLIDS INTO THE 10 TO 100 PPM RANGE , SO THAT FRONT TO BACK RECYCLING IS POSSIBLE WITH THESE TWO PROCESSSES PROVIDING NON-SPECIES-SELECTIVE WATER TREATMENT.
