Abstract

The effectiveness of source reduction and in-process recycling in reducing both the BOD levels in wastewater as well as wastewater volume discharges in an aluminum grinding facility is presented. Material substitution and the use of appropriate technologies are also highlighted. This synthesis of activities reportedly has the potential to reduce wastewater volume by 50% and the BOD20 levels in the wastewater to 900 to 1,380 mg/L from an initial level of 6,030 mg/L.
