Post-treatment of sanitary landfill leachate by coagulation–flocculation using chitosan as primary coagulant
Chitosan was chosen as an alternative primary coagulant in a complementary coagulation–flocculation treatment of sanitary landfill leachate with the aim of removing recalcitrant organic matter. In order to optimize the process conditions, central composite design and response surface methodology were applied. To evaluate the performance of the process using chitosan, we also carried out tests ...
This work aims to evaluate the potential use of chitosan as an eco-friendly flocculant in chemical conditioning of municipal-activated sludge. Chitosan effectiveness was compared with synthetic ...
Equipment & Solutions
Developed for Active Treatment. ChitoVan Chitosan Acetate is a high quality industrial grade chitosan solution containing the acetate counter-ion and is available in 1% (CA100) and 1.5% (CA150). ChitoVan CA is a clear viscous solution that is very stable (18-month or greater shelf life) in comparison to other flocculents that may degrade rapidly. Chitosan-Enhanced Sand Filtration technology ...
