  • Flocculation processes are extensively used as separation method to remove suspended and dissolved solids, colloids and organic substances in effluents. As flocculation performance affects the economy of many industrial processes, it is important to understand the underlying mechanisms, as well as the predominant flocculant properties influencing the final results. In the present study, a strategy based on the use of laser diffraction spectroscopy (LDS) was developed to screen different… CONTINUE READING
