A research program was completed to identify new and emerging waste management technologies in the metal finishing industry. A limited field sampling and analytical program was pursued to define performance at full scale operating facilities for the following technologies: (1) buoyant media filtration - 3M; (2) Zerpol zero liquid discharge; and (3) Zerpa distillation solvent recovery. Information was developed regarding cost, performance, safety, and applicability of these technologies. A preliminary evaluation of the processes based on the limited testing indicated potential applications of all three processes in segments of the metal finishing industry.
