The Odessa Texas Butadiene Plant will require 3 or more million gallons of water per day to meet the requirements of the cooling tower and the boiler make-up system. The only dependable source of water able to satisfy that demand is the Odessa sewage effluent. The pilot plant work carried on this spring was designed to develop through test, the treating system capable of modifying the chemical and physical composition of the Odessa sewage effluent in such a manner as to eliminate those chemical and physical factors that were objectionable in Cooling Tower and Boiler Feed make-up waters. Presented are the results of those tests.
