Abstract A wastewater regeneration treatment was successfully designed by using modified amorphous silica as an adsorption agent, this ceramic material is generated as an industrial waste in a geothermal power plant located in the City of Mexicali, Baja California. A tertiary wastewater process for the removal of heavy metals from wastewater was designed by modifying purified amorphous silica (99.40% by weight) with low cost reagents as urea and sodium carbonate in a sol – gel reaction.
