Abstract
This report documents the reasons for selecting a physico-chemical process instead of a more conventional biological process for secondary treatment of the complex organic wastewaters generated by a Naval Stores manufacturing plant. The selected carbon adsorption system is then discussed in detail including its removal effectiveness, problems encountered, and economics of operation. The system, when operated within specifications, is capable of removing about 80% of the COD and 85% of the TOC remaining after primary treatment at a cost of about 31.4 cents/1000 gal. The total system achieves 95% plus removals of COD and TOC.
