Adsorption of Hazardous Heavy Metals Using Reactive Inorganic Agents in Synthetic Wastewater
This study focused on the adsorption characteristics of hazardous heavy metals using reactive inorganic agents in synthetic wastewater. Basic properties of five reactive agents were analyzed by zeta potential, particle size, XRF and SEM. Zeta potential of five adsorbents was 45, 7, 14, -2 and 45 mV, respectively. Average particle size was in the range of 1.4 to 9㎛. By XRF analysis, main components were Na, Al, Si, S and Fe in reactive agents and no great differences in Mg, K, Ca and Ti components. As, Zn, Ni, Cu, Cr, Cd and Pb were used as target heavy metals. Adsorption capacity of Pb and Cu was in the order: TN 315Ny-T3>TN820L>TN315NY.
