- The effect of coagulants on the waste liquors from the process of printing cotton goods is investigated. Treatment by coagulation with 4.5 pounds of lime per thousand gallons, using recirculated sludge as an aid to coagulation, followed by rapid sand filtration produces a clear and sparking effluent suitable for discharge into streams containing fish and plant life, or for discharge into sewage treatment plants.
