The two-volume report gives results of a detailed examination of dyebath reconstitution and reuse, one of several wastewater recycle/reuse technologies allowing textile finishing mills to reduce the volume of wastewater and the amount of pollutants discharged. (NOTE: About 80% of these plants discharge their wastewater to publicly owned treatment works (POTWs). Most of the wastewater receives little or no pretreatment before discharge into municipal collection systems.) This recycle technology is considered promising for several reasons: significant environmental benefits, potential for widespread application, low capital cost, cost savings in textile dyeing, and economic attractiveness. Volume 1 gives results of the investigation at a carpet mill. It gives results of bench-, pilot-, and full-scale testing, presenting wastewater data documenting the achieved pollutant reductions. It addresses the economic feasibility of implementing the technology full-scale.
