The project examines the Zerpol process. The Zerpol process, as used in metal plating operations, captures all aqueous effluent from the manufacturing operations, conditions the effluent to remove any metal or cyanide that may be present, and permits the reuse of the conditioned water in rinsing operations. About 30% of the recovered water is fed into the plant boiler to generate distilled water for critical rinsing. The goals of the study include confirmation that the quality of the water derived from the Zeropol process is appropriate for the intended use, that the process is safe, and to estimate the economics of the installation and use of the process as compared to other alternatives. The evaluation was carried out at Pioneer Metal Finishing in Franklinville, New Jersey.
