Guide book concerning wastewater treatment and water recycling aspects in plating sector

In order to implement the White Book for platers, first step was to implement an effluents deionising pilot, to test the recovery capacity of different filtration media. As this pilot could be processed only on one kind of media, PM tested the anionic media by recovering Cr6 under its shape Cr2 O7- from synthetic effluents. Cationic media were tested with a solution of Cu++. Cleaning tests were then performed on industrial rinsing. The media supplied work correctly to fix on the grafts; however, difficulties remain on graft regeneration and their fixing capacity, which should be solved by the current tests with new threads; in that case, positive results could lead filtration media to take an important part in the wastewater purification market in the plating industry, alongside the other techniques depicted in the White Book.
