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 ...

The ChitoVan Chitosan Lactate Cartridge is a high quality industrial grade chitosan salt containing lactic acid encased within a permeable cartridge. Installed in a pipe, trough, conveyance channel or atop a berm, the chitosan salt slowly dissolves as the water flows over and through the cartridge. Once in solution, the chitosan flocculates suspended sediment particles which settle and can be ...
