This study of industrial laundry wastewater treatment by ultrafiltration and activated carbon adsorption has indicated that a consistently high quality product water, potentially reusable within the laundry, can be produced. The operation of the spiral-wound ultrafiltration modules was, however, hindered by the fouling tendency of the feed stream. Average module permeate flux was therefore low. This factor, in turn, resulted in high capital and operating cost estimates for full-scale treatment systems.
