Abstract:

There is hardly any useful method for detoxifying the TNT waste water, aside from evaporation followed by burning. Treatments with activated charcoal, extraction methods Phenosolvan, and acid adsorption precipitations on protein or nitrogen-containing plastics give only partial success. As these partial successes could be attained only with strongly acidic waste water, acid- resistant plants are necessary, making the process expensive. The authors consider the acid economics of these waste waters to the extent that they may be of importance for waste water economics in other industries.
