The recycling potential of municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) bottom ash may be limited by the leaching of antimony (Sb). Therefore, treatment methodologies need to be developed. The pH-dependent leaching behaviour of this oxyanion-forming element in fresh and weathered bottom ash is, however, not understood. Sb leaching was investigated in a wide range of both pH and extent of carbonation. Sb came close to equilibrium with calcium antimonate (Ca[Sb(OH)(6)](2)) at acid and neutral pH… CONTINUE READING
