GLRPPR Sector Resource: Evaluation of Ultrafiltration for In-Process Recycling of Cleaning Solution at Ford's Chicago Stamping Plant

Title:
Evaluation of Ultrafiltration for In-Process Recycling of Cleaning Solution at Ford's Chicago Stamping Plant

Abstract:
Solutions used to clean floors and dies at Ford's Chicago Heights, Illinois stamping plant contribute over 1.1 million gallons annually to the facility's wastewater treatment plant. The wasted cleaning solution tends to emulsify other oily wastes in the wastewater, causing the current treatment system's inability to efficiently separate the water and oil under existing conditions. As a result of these factors, Ford has had a difficult time meeting the local sanitary district standards for fats, oils and grease. This project was conducted to evaluate the technical and economic potential for ultrafiltration to recycle aqueous cleaning solutions at the Ford Stamping Plant. Technical Report by Tim Lindsey.
