Heavy metal removal from aqueous solution by wasted biomass from a combined AS-biofilm process.

Abstract

This study evaluated the capability of metal biosorption by wasted biomass from a combined anaerobic-anoxic-oxic (A2O)-biofilm process with simultaneous nitrogen and phosphorus removal. Zinc, cadmium and nickel were rapidly adsorbed in 20 min by the harvested sludge from a continuous-flow pilot-plant. Biosorption equilibrium was then reached in 6h. The… (More)
