Summary Car wash wastewater contains significant concentrations of contaminants such as nutrients, organics, particulate matter, sand, oil, grease, diesel detergents and so on. A range of treatment processes such as a membrane bioreactor (MBR), coagulation and ozonation were investigated to treat car wash wastewater. Ozonation was effective in removing the chemicals and suspended solids; the removal efficiency was greater than the coagulation process. Once the MBR system was acclimatised, 100% of suspended solids, 99.2% of COD, 97.3% of TOC and 41% of ammonia were removed. This study demonstrates that MBR is a potentially promising treatment system for recycling car wash wastewater which could be reused in the same car wash station.
