The analytical data obtained in a jar-test using the FTU as the control parameter demonstrate the efficacy of the process, as reductions in the FTU approaching 100% and elimination rates of 80% in the BOD5, 80% in detergents and 85% in the COD were achieved. These results show that coagulation and flocculation are sufficient to treat laundry waste water, even though it contains a high pollutant load, since both organic and inorganic pollutants can be significantly reduced by such operations.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/49168||ISSN:||0211-8173||Source:||Tecnologia del Agua[ISSN 0211-8173],v. 26, p. 68-75|
