Research Duration Start:
1 January 2020
31 December 2020
Research Location FPRDI
Research Description The current wastewater disposal practice is either discharge within the local drainage system or direct disposal to bodies of water. This can contribute to environmental pollution as the wastewater contains toxic chemicals from finishing overspray. To resolve this, development of wastewater characteristics, the optimal treatment method suitable for FSBW and the volume of one unit of FSB, among others.
Research Objectives The general objective of the project is to develop a Finishing Spray Booth Wastewater (FSBW) treatment equipment. Specifically, it aims to: (1) investigate the combination of wastewater treatment method suitable for FSBW; (2) design and fabricate a wastewater treatment equipment for FSBW; (3) evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed treatment equipment; and (4) capacitate plant personnel on the proper orientation, maintenance and trouble-shooting of the developed treatment equipment.
