There is a strong need for treatment processes which can detoxify, destroy, or apply resource recovery principles to industrial wastes. This study examined 47 unit engineering processes for their applicability to the task of treating hazardous industrial wastes. Some of these unit processes are commonly used for industrial waste treatment while others require further R&D efforts before they will become commercially attractive. Four (dialysis, electrophoresis, freeze drying and zone refining) were found not to be applicable to waste treatment. Part Two of this report presents comprehensive descriptions of each of the unit processes, including information on the basic principles, areas of application, economics, energy and environmental considerations, and an outlook for future use on industrial wastes. Thus, Part Two is in essence an up-to-date reference textbook on potential treatment processes.
