  • Abstract Wood-based polyelectrolytes, produced from renewable and biodegradable sources, can be considered as more environmentally friendly flocculation agents for the wastewater treatment compared to the traditional synthetic flocculants. The aim of this study was to produce new natural-based polyelectrolytes (bio-PELs), water-soluble, cationic cellulose-based polymers derived from Eucalyptus bleached fibres (CDACf) and to evaluate their effectiveness as flocculation agents by studying their… CONTINUE READING
