A study of wastewater discharge in the granite industry has been conducted to determine wastewater characteristics, methods of pollution abatement and disposal methods for waste granite sludge. The project included a study of overall water use in a granite plant, water optimization studies, and water reduction studies. Laboratory testing was conducted for waste characterization and liquid solids separation techniques. A pilot plant was designed, constructed and operated to test the efficiency of plant scale separation procedures. A prototype plant was designed and constructed to test the possibility of complete water reuse in the granite industry. Successful operation of both plants indicates that a practical method of treating granite waste effluent has been developed and that complete recycle of treated effluent is possible and economically feasible.
