Abstract
In research conducted as part of its mission to effect pollution abatement, the Bureau of Mines has developed a specialized flocculation dewatering technique that may have wide application in the disposal of industrial wastes. This method allows for reuse of water previously lost with the wastes, eliminates or reduces the need for storage ponds, and facilitates recovery of mineral values. The flocculants used are high molecular weight polymers such as polyethylene oxide and polyacrylamides that can form strong, tough flocs with the wastes.
