Abstract

In the manufacturing of TNT, there are three waste water streams that must be processed in order to comply with federal and local government regulations. These are: (1) “red” water which is produced by the sellite (sodium sulfite) treatment; (2) “pink” water which is produced when the partially purified TNT is washed following the sellite treatment; and (3) wash waters from the TNT finishing process. While all these polluted streams are being investigated at the U. S. Army Natick Laboratories, this paper will cover results obtained with wash waters from TNT finishing processes.
