Recent Developments in Industrial Wastewater Treatment: The Role of Physico-Chemical Processes in Metal Control

  • G. Tiravanti
Conference paper

Abstract

The industrial pollutants in wastewaters can be broadly categorized into organic and inorganic compounds. The most common method for treating organic pollutants is to destroy them by biological or thermal oxidation, converting them into carbon dioxide, water and other oxidation products. Inorganic pollutants cannot be destroyed, of course, and biological processes cannot be generally applied for their treatment.
