Desorption studies for low cost adsorbents
Author(s): Sunil J. Kulkarni, Jayant P. Kaware
Abstract: Adsorption for wastewater treatment has been extensively studied and practiced method. It can selectively used for removal of certain pollutant by selection of suitable adsorbent. The used adsorption has to be discarded after it becomes exhausted. Commercial adsorbents can be regenerated and reused. The disposal of adsorbent is again solid treatment and disposal problem. The maximum regeneration and reuse is advised in order to make the operation environmental friendly. The current investigations aim at exploring the possibility and effectiveness of low cost adsorbent regeneration. The results indicate that the phenol desorption up to 40.7 and 30.9 for GNSA and RHA respectively and cadmium desorption up to 25.1 and 26.03 is possible for GNSA and RHA adsorbents respectively. The results indicates that there is need to study desorption of cadmium and phenol and explore more economical and effective option for adsorbent regeneration.
