Sorptive Removal of Phosphate From Wastewater Using Activated Red Mud

  title={Sorptive Removal of Phosphate From Wastewater Using Activated Red Mud},
  author={Marwa M. EL-Tayieb and Maha El Shafai and Nouran Y. Mohamed},
Red mud (RM), is a kind of industrial waste produced in the process of alumina production Because of the increasing demand for alumina during economic development, more and more RM is being produced. Hence, the disposal and management of RM remains a challenging issue to the alumina industry. This study examined the effect of acid activated red mud on phosphate removal. Thus, its use in phosphate removal can be also considered as a way of disposal. The removal capacity of RM for phosphate ions… Expand
Simultaneous removal of nitrate and phosphate from wastewater using solid waste from factory
