Abstract

Wastewater of the EGIS Pharmaceutical Factory, Inc. were analyzed for biological degradability by aerobic and anaerobic methods. Three types of wastewaters were analyzed: (1) the average and of (2) the veratric aldehyde and (3) cyanide content. Based on the data, withdrawal of the wastes of high non-degradable COD content from the biological sewage treatment process of the factory was recommended as the most economical solution.
