Textile printing and dyeing wastewater is usually characterized by high pH, high turbidity, poor bio-degradability, complex composition, and high chrominance, and is discharged in large amounts. It has been regarded as one of the hardest to treat forms of industrial wastewater. Conventional physicochemical technologies can remove these contaminants from water bodies, but at the expense of high energy consumption and high cost. Alternatively, biological processes with limited energy consumption, low cost and high efficiency are considered as promising technologies...

The use of engineering textile materials has emerged as a viable alternative to conventional methods of sludge dewatering in numerous application areas including municipal wastewater, mining, and pulp and paper. Previous studies have focused on the development of empirical ratios between dewatering performance and the porous properties of the textile material, the challenge is that the latter is difficult to characterize using currently available techniques. In this study, a series of dewatering filters were produced using advanced microfabrication techniques to create well-defined slit-pore geometries; a full-factorial design-of-experiments was employed to evaluate the effects of slit-pore dimensions and slit-pore spacing on the cake layer development and overall dewatering performance in constant-rate dewatering tests with municipal digestate that had been pre-treated with a commercial polymer flocculant...

Membranes with high water permeance, near-zero rejection to inorganic salts (such as NaCl and Na2SO4), and almost 100% rejection to organic dyes are of great interest for the dye desalination (the separation of dyes and salts) of textile wastewater. Herein, we prepared reduced graphene oxide membranes in a solvation state (S-rGO) with nanochannel sizes rightly between the salt ions and dye molecules. The S-rGO membrane rejects >99.0% of Direct Red 80 (DR 80) and has almost zero rejection for Na2SO4. By contrast, conventional GO or rGO membranes often have the channel sizes smaller than divalent ions (such as SO42-) and thus high rejection for Na2SO4...
