EMD Millipore is considering approaches for recycling wastewater from its manufacturing processes for re-use as process water. They currently own and operate a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) at their Jaffrey, NH facility in order to treat organic contaminants. Wastewater chemistries from EMD Millipore’s operations were analyzed and assessed for reclamation potential. Ozone oxidation and activated carbon adsorption technologies were identified for constituent removal. Bench-scale experimental results suggested that ozone and ozone-hydrogen peroxide oxidation are feasible treatment options for EMD Millipore’s wastewater, however further research should be conducted. A pilot-scale ozone system for wastewater reclamation was designed for implementation at the facility.
