  • Study on an effective industrial waste-based adsorbent for the adsorptive removal of phosphorus from wastewater: equilibrium and kinetics studies

    In this work, an effective adsorbent for removing phosphate from aqueous solution was developed from modifying industrial waste — lithium silica fume (LSF). The characterization of LSF before and after modification was investigated using an N2 adsorption–desorption technique (Brunauer–Emmett–Teller, BET), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Studies were conducted to ...
