Abstract
As far back as 1923 the author was occupied in scientific investigation on the purification of waste water from a Java sisal factory through the means of digesting tanks and biological. Filters, trying at the same time to produce combustible gas from this water. The success of these experiments encouraged him to look also for a biological solution of the flume waste problem. After many fruitless efforts he found a few suitable retting processes, aerobic retting as well as water retting. The latter method gave the best product and was chosen for commercial practice and it became the solution for the flume waste problem of many a sisal estate in Java and Sumatra.
