In order to improve the flocculation efficiency and environmental friendliness of commercial flocculants, flax waste cellulose (FC) was grafted with polyacrylamide (PAM) to prepare the FC-g- PAM for partial replacement of the commercial PAM. The morphology and chemical structure of the FC-g-PAM were characterized by FT-IR, field emission scanning electron microscopy, organic element analyzer, X-ray diffractometer and thermogravimetric analysis. Its biodegradability was also investigated. The flocculation performance of the FC-g -PAM in treating wastewater from dyeing, papermaking and mechanical processing were studied. The results showed that the optimal synthesis conditions for preparing FC-g -PAM were: reaction temperature 80 ℃,ammonium persulfate dosage 0. 30 g/ g, PAM dosage 0. 25 g/ g and FC concentration 6%. Thermal stability of FC-g-PAM was demonstrated better than that of FC and 90 d biodegradation rate reached 68.5%. After the flocculation of the FC-g-PAM, the turbidity of treated dyeing wastewater was 17 NTU, chromaticity at 126, supended matter content at 36 mg/ L, CODCr at 372 mg/ L, BOD5 at 132 mg/ L. All these indices of FC-g-PAM indicate better flocculation performance than those of the commercial PAM.

Key words: flax yarn waste, cellulose-based flocculant, flocculation, dyeing wastewater, papermaking wastewater, mechanical processing wastewater
