Beneficial Use of Weak Acetic Acid Solution


A client of mine generates 6000 gallons per day of wastewater that contains 4 wt. % of acetic acid.  

This client makes coating materials for pharmaceutical companies.  Acetic acid is the predominant ingredient in this waste.  Other ingredients in the waste are biodegradable or innocuous.

Currently, this waste is sent offsite for disposal, costing the client arm and leg. I am looking for beneficial uses of this waste. Any suggestions are appreciated.
