An industrial waste survey of the textile maintenance industry was performed to characterize and quantify the pollutants emanating from various types of plants. Bench scale waste treatment tests were performed to design a system for the textile maintenance industry. A wastewater treatment system consisting of chemical treatment and flocculation facilities, dissolved-air flotation for solids-liquid separation, diatomaceous earth filtration for polishing the flotation effluent, and vacuum filtration dewatering of flotation scum was installed at a commercial laundry. Data were obtained on effluent quality, sludge volume, chemical costs and other operating costs for industrial laundry wastewater, linen laundry wastewater, and uniform laundry wastewater.
