  • New hurdles for water reuse

    In a letter dated January 19, 2005, the USDA-Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) indicated that if water is to be reused in a poultry processing facility, then this reuse water must be accounted for in the plant’s HACCP program. This requirement may cause some difficulties as processors consider the associated hazard analyses. When water is used to chill or rinse broiler carcasses, fat, ...

  • Olive mill waste water treatment

    The production of olive oil generates two kind of waste waters: RINSING WATERS: the quantity is subject to change. It can be re-circulated, after the settling to remove the solids, or discharged directly. SLUDGE: vegetation water with additional water, whose quantity is subject to change. In case of traditional oil mills, the hot additional water flows to the inlet of the centrifuge. Part ...

  • Improvement of Electrodeposition Paint Processes with Reverse Osmosis

    Abstract For over 15 years, membrane separation processes have been very effectively utilized as essential components of electrodeposition (ED) paint processes. ED is the accepted method of applying the undercoat paint layer to new automobiles and appliances. As cross-flow membrane and ED paint technologies mature, new applications combining the two have been developed. A major American ...


  • Case Study - KIA E-Coat Wastewater and Treatment Process

    KIA Automotive uses a water-borne Electrodepostion (E-Coat) paint process that produces various wastes including rinse waters containing Zinc (Zn), Nickel (Ni) & phosphorous (P) waste. Most of the waste is found in the rinse waters from the e-coat overflows that contain less 1000 mg/l TSS. Some of the “dumps” contain detactified paint waste concentrate in small quantities. The various ...

  • Sintered Metal Manufacturing 1

    This facility generates 2 waste streams from their metal sintering operations. The first waste stream comes from their cutting oil operations and rinse water. The wastewater is then stored in several tanks and allowed to partially separate with some of the floating oil skimmed off.
