The report gives results of a program to determine the feasibility of extracting pesticides from process streams using a liquid-liquid solvent extraction approach. A brief literature review provided foundational data in support of the technology identified for study. The review resulted in a bibliography. Acquired information enabled the priority-ranking and selection of pesticides for project study and the identification of optimum solvents for liquid-liquid extraction. A compilation of various engineering design options for liquid-liquid extraction systems led to the selection of a design choice consisting of a countercurrent-flow rotary-disc contactor (RDC) process. Finally, literature on engineering design economics enabled the formulation of reliable cost estimates for the derived technology.
