The operation of an anaerobic-aerobic bio-oxidation treatment system for textile wastes using activated carbon was studied for 24 months at Palisades Industries, Peace Dale, Rhode Island. Biological oxidation and conversion of soluble organic waste constituents took place in the aerated basin operated as a mixed dispersed growth reactor without return sludge. Washed out solids from the aeration basin were filtered by a parallel set of activated carbon columns. The entrapped solids were then hydrolized when these columns were regenerated in place anaerobically. A second parallel set of carbon columns provided for additional removal of solids and soluble organics. However, the biological regeneration in these columns was carried out aerobically. The study demonstrated that waste streams from a typical cloth dyeing and finishing operation can be effectively treated using activated carbon coupled with biological regeneration.
