  • Removal of phosphate and fluoride from optoelectronic wastewater by calcite

    The objective of this study is to study the removal of phosphate (PO43− ) and fluoride (F−) by using calcite from the thin-film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) manufacturing wastewater. The highest phosphate adsorption capacity of 40.65 mg/g calcite was found at pH 6.5. It is proposed that both adsorption and precipitation were involved in the removal of phosphate and fluoride. Solid ...

  • Strategies to optimize phosphate removal from industrial anaerobic effluents by magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP) production

    Owing to more stringent phosphate discharge requirements and the increasing prices of fertilizers, beneficial recovery and reuse of phosphate from industrial anaerobic effluents is becoming an important issue. Phosphate recovery by struvite or magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP) permits its recycling in the fertilizer industry because struvite is a valuable slow release fertilizer. Two different ...


  • Prediction of adsorption rate of phosphate removal from wastewater with gas concrete

    Gas concrete, a conventional structural material, is used to remove phosphate from wastewater. A batch study of phosphate removal from wastewater with waste particles of gas concrete has been performed. The concentration-time graphs were plotted against pH, temperature, and agitation speed, and the reaction rate equation was adapted to adsorption. The differential method was used to define ...

  • Immobilization of magnesium ammonium phosphate crystals within microchannels for efficient ammonia removal

    Magnesium ammonium phosphate was formed in flow-through microchannels of silica monoliths using two different methods to fabricate materials that show efficient ammonia adsorption performance from wastewater with low hydraulic resistance. Magnesium ammonium phosphate crystals in these materials release ammonia when heated at 378 K, yielding primarily magnesium hydrogen phosphate. When this ...

  • Granular ferric hydroxide adsorbent for phosphate removal: demonstration preparation and field study

    Ferric hydroxide (FHO), which has high phosphate adsorption capacity, was prepared by precipitation at industrial scale and then fabricated via the drum granulation method with cross-linked poly(vinyl alcohol) as the binder. The optimum binder/FHO powder ratio was 0.6 for producing a granular adsorbent with a high phosphate adsorption capacity and stability. The Langmuir maximum adsorption ...

  • Arsenic removal by ferric-chloride coagulation – effect of phosphate, bicarbonate and silicate

    Jar tests with synthetic water were carried out in order to investigate the effect of phosphate, bicarbonate and silicate on arsenic removal efficiency by in-situ formed ferric hydroxide. Above 12 mg C/L inorganic carbon concentration, the adverse effect of bicarbonate was definite, and resulted in higher remaining arsenic concentration. At all pH values (7.5–7.8) and coagulant dosages (0.84–3.00 ...

  • Phosphate removal from wastewater using aluminium oxide as adsorbent

    The development and manufacture of an adsorbent to remove phosphate for the prevention of eutrophication in lakes is very important. The use of aluminium oxide (alumina) as an organic adsorbent to remove phosphate from wastewater has been investigated. The characteristics of this absorption process were investigated to determine the important parameters, such as the pH and the aluminium ion ...

  • Autotrophic nitrogen removal after ureolytic phosphate precipitation to remove both endogenous and exogenous nitrogen

    Anaerobic digestion yields effluents rich in ammonium and phosphate and poor in biodegradable organic carbon, thereby making them less suitable for conventional biological nitrogen and phosphorus removal. In addition, the demand for fertilizers is increasing, energy prices are rising and global phosphate reserves are declining. This requires both changes in wastewater treatment technologies and ...

  • Effects of nitrite on phosphate uptake in anaerobic-oxic process

    An anaerobic-oxic (A/O) biological phosphorus removal reactor was operated to study the effect of nitrite on phosphate uptake. The phosphorus uptake profile was determined under different operating conditions. The results indicated that in addition to oxygen and nitrate (DPBNa, nitrate denitrifying phosphorus removal), to some extent, nitrite could also serve as an electron acceptor to achieve ...
