Some commercial and industrial facilities treat RCRA spent solvent wastewaters by steam stripping, carbon adsorption, and/or biological processes. Thirteen facilities were visited by EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) from June 1985 to September 1986, to conduct sampling and analysis episodes and to determine the levels of performance achievable by these and other treatment processes. The paper summarizes the results of five of the tests: two steam strippers, two carbon adsorption systems, and one activated sludge biological system.
