  • The 5 Benefits of Professional Arsenic Removal from Water

    It is a sad and scary truth, but many homes have arsenic in their water systems. High levels of arsenic can be dangerous to you, your family, your pets, and the property you inhabit. Do not panic, though. Simply research an arsenic filtration system. There are many advanced methods that can be used to remove arsenic from water. Arsenic in water removal is completely affordable and safe. ...

  • Application of leaching tests on phosphogypsum by infiltration-percolation

    The phosphoric acid production obtained by attacking phosphate rock by sulphuric acid cogenerates considerable quantities of phosphogypsum. The world cogeneration is estimated about 100–280 Mt per year. In another context of sustainable development, the phosphate chemical industry develops different ways of phosphogypsum valorization, which makes its storage stack in a suitable way for its ...

  • Kinetic study of Reactive Black 5 degradation by Fe2+/S2O82− process via interactive model-based response surface methodology

    This study aimed to kinetically discover optimal conditions on characteristics of Reactive Black 5 decolorization/degradation via ferrous (Fe2+)-activated potassium persulfate (PS). Monod-like kinetics and interactive model-based response surface methodology (RSM) were applied to fitting and predict optimize treatment. Biodegradability of the intermediates was also tested by ...
