Experimental Study on Influence of Fly Ash in Melting Process on Heavy Metal Speciation
The influence of melting process on heavy metal speciation was studied. The results show that although there are different changes of heavy metals Cd, Cu, Mn and Zn after melting process, percentage of residue is increasing and others are decreasing. Before melting process, Pb exists mainly in carbonate, Fe-Mn oxide and organic matter bound fractions and in Fe-Mn oxide bound fraction after the process. The percentage distribution of Cr, As, Ba and Ni are not changed obviously before and after melting. In general, the existence forms of all testing heavy metals trend to more stable speciation after melting process.
