Abstract: Regulations for both direct and indirect discharges have become so stringent in order to protect the environment that wastewater treatment and effluent levels in the organics chemicals industry and many other industries are below the acceptable reporting limits established by OSHA and SARA. If these residual pollutant levels are not reactive in a process system, it is possible for the treated wastewater to be recycled back to the process. This is almost always true in the case of regulated stormwater, such as that which falls on tank farms and loading and unloading areas, and may also be true in the case of process flow. This paper will present case studies of three different organic chemicals and pesticide plants which have gone through studies, design and construction during the last year and successfully reduced pollutant concentrations to recyclable levels.
