Abstract

Phenolic waters are generated in a producer gas plant in India. Since harmful environmental effects can result even with low concentrations of phenol in water, its disposal poses a problem. Four options for disposal were considered. One of these options considered involves disposal in a earthen pond situated close to a river. In order to avoid river pollution by possible seepage of phenolic waste, geotechnical aspects have to be considered. For each option, cost analysis is performed. This paper d1scusses as to how the final disposal technique is decided taking into account all the relevant aspects of the problem.

Disposal of Phenolic Waters From a Producer Gas Plant
