Development of combined membrane filtration, electrocoagulation, and adsorption processes for treatment and reuse of laundry wastewater

The wastewater from laundries (greywater) is contaminated by several products and requires specific treatment to remove the various contaminants that are hazardous to the environment. Therefore, appropriate treatment system must be applied in order to reuse wastewater and minimize its release into the nature. The objective of this project is to develop a process for treatment of these kinds of wastewater without addition of chemicals by utilizing combined membrane filtration and adsorption processes. The trainee participating in this project will have the opportunity to put into practice the knowledge acquired in water sciences during his training at INRS Québec. The success of this project will allow the partner company Groupe VEOS Inc to use this novel technology for greywater treatment.
