The objectives of this study are to examine the applicability of waste slurry from soda ash manufacturing industries as a coagulant for the treatment of wastewater containing fine silica particles, and to reduce the cost of wastewater treatment containing silica. Acceptable water quality can be obtained with a little dosing of waste slurry by gelation before the coagulation process so it could be concluded that the waste slurry from soda ash can be used as a coagulant. Based on the results of experiments, the optimum pH of gelation for silica in wastewater was around five and the treatment process with the gelation of silica could reduce the chemical dosage and waste sludge after coagulation. Dewatering and settling characteristics of the floc after coagulation with the waste slurry are better than those of the floc after coagulation with the lime milk only.
