Predicting the propagation of concentration and saturation fronts in fixed-bed filters
(IWA Publishing, 2017-07-05)
The phenomenon of adsorption is widely exploited across a range of industries to remove contaminants from gases and liquids. Much recent research has focused on identifying low-cost adsorbents which have the potential to ...
Evaluating long-term performance of low-cost adsorbents using small-scale adsorption column experiments
This study investigated a novel method of predicting the long-term phosphorus removal performance of large-scale adsorption filters, using data derived from short-term, small-scale column experiments. The filter media ...
Use of amendments in a peat soil to reduce phosphorus losses from forestry operations
Forestry harvesting on peats is known to result in significant losses of soil phosphorus (P) to adjacent waters, and the issue is becoming an increasingly serious concern as peatland forest stocks mature and reach harvestable ...
Enhancement of bauxite residue as a low-cost absorbent for phosphorus in aqueous solution, using seawater and gypsum treatments.
Bauxite residue (red mud), the by-product produced in the alumina industry, is being produced at an estimated global rate of approximately 150Mt per annum. Due to its highly alkaline nature, many refineries use neutralisation ...
