  • Arsenic Removal

    The Arsenic Removal ProcessArsenic, a naturally occurring element, is found throughout the environment; for most people, food is the major source of exposure. Acute (short-term) high-level inhalation exposure to arsenic dust or fumes has resulted in gastrointestinal effects (nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain); central and peripheral nervous system disorders have occurred in workers acutely ...

  • Modelling oxyanion adsorption on ferralic soil. 2. Chromate, selenate, molybdate, and arsenate adsorption

    High levels of oxyanions are found in the soil environment, often as a result of human activity. At high concentrations, oxyanions can be harmful to both humans and wildlife. Information about the interactions between oxyanions and natural samples is essential for understanding the bioavailability, toxicity and transport of these compounds in the environment. In the present study, we ...

  • Arsenic adsorption using Fe(III)-loaded porous amidoximated acrylonitrile/itaconic copolymers

    A highly selective polymeric ligand exchanger was developed for the removal of trace As(V) from aqueous solution. This adsorbent was prepared by loading Fe(III) onto porous amidoximated polyacrynitrile (AN)/itaconic acid (IA) copolymers (Fe(III)-AO AN/IA). Negligible ferric ion dissolution was observed from Fe(III)-AO AN/IA in solution of acidic pHs up to 2. As(V) adsorption by Fe(III)-AO ...

  • Arsenic removal from groundwater by ion exchange and adsorption processes: comparison of two different materials

    Among the different technologies for reducing arsenic concentration in drinking water, adsorption has demonstrated in many cases to be superior in terms of performance and costs. However, there are numerous types of commercial adsorbents potentially capable of treating arsenic-contaminated groundwater. The present paper compares arsenic uptake efficiency of two different commercial media, one ...

  • Equilibrium and kinetic studies for the adsorption of arsenic from aqueous medium using Cyanex 301–impregnated natural and synthetic fibrous supports

    The direct decontamination of As(III), the more toxic species of arsenic has been developed in the present research work using the fibrous supports impregnated with the extractant Cyanex 301. Bis (2,4,4–trimethylpentyl) dithiophosphinic acid (Cyanex 301) was used as an extractant for impregnating the fibrous supports namely the natural oil catcher (OC) and the synthetic kapok fibre (KFO). Batch ...

  • Zeolite modified with copper oxide and iron oxide for lead and arsenic adsorption from aqueous solutions

    How to completely remove toxic metals from water is still a serious challenge, and is the mission that faces researchers and scientists today. In this work, zeolite/copper oxide (CuO) and zeolite/iron oxide (Fe3O4) nanocomposites (NCs) were prepared via a co-precipitation method. Several techniques were used for characterization of the prepared NCs including UV-visible, powder X-ray ...

  • Adsorption and desorption properties of arsenate onto nano-sized iron-oxide-coated quartz

    This study was conducted to investigate the adsorption and desorption properties of arsenate [As(V)] on nano-sized iron-oxide-coated quartz (IOCQ) through batch experiments. The coating of nano-sized iron oxide on the quartz surface was performed using the heat treatment process which aimed to utilize the adsorption properties of the nano-sized iron oxide and the filtration properties of the ...

  • Project profile - arsenic treatment-Michigan

    Background In May, 2003, upon approval by the County Health Department, Adedge Technologies installed the first arsenic treatment system for a Type II nontransient, non-community (NTNC) water system in Oakland County, Michigan. The 40 gallon per minute (gpm) modular system was installed at an elementary school serving 600 students to reduce naturally occurring arsenic to meet the new EPA ...

  • USEPA Arsenic Demonstration Project - Stewart, Minnesota - Arsenic and Iron Treatment System

    AdEdge Technologies Inc. (AdEdge) was selected in 2004 by the U.S. EPA as part of the Round 2 Arsenic Demonstration Program to implement full scale arsenic treatment for the city of Stewart, Minnesota. This public water system serves a community of approximately 600 people with average daily demand of 60,000 gallons per day. AdEdge was selected from the proposed alternatives by the host site and ...

  • Understanding the 3 Types of Arsenic Removal Used for Wastewater

    With the onset of the Industrial Revolution and the development of internal combustion engines and new manufacturing technologies, fresh water became an essential raw material not only for production, but for cooling purposes in manufacturing processes. However, when fresh water is used in an industrial process, it creates industrial wastewater composed of a variety of chemicals and other raw ...

  • Effective Techniques for Arsenic Removal from Water

    Arsenic is a tricky substance because it is colorless and odorless, making detecting its presence and ensuring its removal at a contaminant site tricky. However, high levels of arsenic can have drastic, fatal effects on wildlife as well as humans if left untreated. If it isn’t properly and fully extracted, serious problems can result. If you’re considering the best industrial ...
