Tighter environmental regulations challenge industry to improve processes to minimize waste and conserve energy (Metzner, 1988). Traditionally, solid wastes resulting from effluent treatment systems have been disposed by incineration or by sending to landfills (Swinehart, 1990). These approaches are no longer appropriate, since incineration may lead to toxic gaseous emissions and air pollution, and landfills could result in contamination of water supplies.
