RE: Pretreatment guidance for priority and other chemicals accept edat wastewater treatment plants



In a recent post to P2TECH, Cindy McComas (mccom003@tc.umn.edu) asked, in
part:

> I am looking for a reference document or website for pretreatment

One source you might consider for some of this information is a publication
available through the AIChE's Center for Waste Reduction Technologies
(www.aiche.org/cwrt):

How to Implement Industrial Water Reuse: A Systematic Approach

A guide to help conceptual process designers and process operators
systematically incorporate the principles of water conservation, recycling,
and reuse into new plant, retrofit, and technology development designs. The
book includes technology summaries and case studies supporting this
systematic approach to water reuse.

Publish Date: 1996 
Pages: 112pp 
Price: $50.00
ISBN No: 0-8169-0675-0
Pub No: C-5

CWRT is currently commissioning the sequel to this document, but until this
is available, this document is highly recommended as a concise source of
information about specific water reclamation technologies, their
technological limits, and how they are put to use. 

Hope this helps.
