Recycling of aqueous cleaning solutions with membrane filtration: Issues and practice

Abstract

Ultrafiltration as a recycling method for aqueous cleaners has tremendous potential if investigated carefully, engineered properly, and implemented conscientiously. As a technology it is ideally positioned to both reduce waste volumes as well as reduce chemical consumption substantially. It is expected that this technology will receive greater attention as the proposed Metal Products and Machinery Rule and initiatives, such as the CSI, become practice.
