Clarifying Paper & Textile Effluent

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth
Project Description A pilot unit to test the technical feasibility of using hydrogen peroxide with TAML® activator is under construction at the Advanced Technology & Manufacturing Center at UMass-Dartmouth. Field trials with manufacturing facilities are expected to begin in December 2004. The project is currently soliciting companies in paper and textile industries that have color issues with their wastewater effluents to participate in the trials.

The TAML® activator or catalyst was developed by investigators at Carnegie Mellon University. With this activator, new chemical pathways to implement advanced oxidation processes using hydrogen peroxide have been discovered. The removal of colors from effluents of paper and textile mills can result in economically advantageous conservation of water, process chemicals, and energy. This promising new approach should also be a more environmentally friendly alternative to chlorine-based oxidants, which can produce persistent organic halides or dioxin.
