The history, basic principles, process application, laboratory approach, and grant program concerning solvent (liquid-liquid) extraction was investigated in relation to its application to industrial effluent waste water systems. A search of the literature reveals that little consideration has been given to solvent extraction as a feasible waste treatment method. Various aspects of solvent extraction technology are presented along with a number of industrial wastes which should be considered for treatment. One of the areas of greatest need for research concerning industrial waste water treatment is in the removal of refractory, and taste and odor causing compounds. Application of solvent extraction to waste systems containing low concentrations (0.05%) may be feasible on a 'swap out' basis or in conjunction with biological, adsorption, or incineration treatments as a pretreatment step. Application of solvent extraction to waste systems for recovery of salable products to offset cost of treatment should be studied for feasibility. Accomplishments and plans regarding industrial research projects are presented. (Author)
