Treatment of industrial wastewater in accordance to ‘zero waste’ strategy
Author / authors
An integrated system combining volumetric coagulation and nanofiltration (NF) was proposed as the high-efficiency wastewater treatment technology. In this study, biologically treated coke wastewater (after denitrification and nitrification processes) coming from a coke plant located in Silesia (southern Poland) was used. The results indicate that the use of integrated membrane processes allows to achieve high efficiency of wastewater treatment. The treated wastewater can be converted back and used as technical water in the coke plant, in accordance to ‘zero waste’ strategy.
