Cerium (IV) oxide, commonly known as ceria, is a rare-earth compound used in the optics industry to polish glass surfaces found in many high-tech products and components. Sending the spent polishing slurry, which contains high levels of total suspended solids, into the sewage system may damage natural ecosystems. This paper describes the work performed to evaluate technologies, design, and implement a system to recover more ceria and reduce TSS discharge from the ceria washwater operation. This supports SDG 9 and 12.
