The zero-valent iron magnetic biochar composites (ZVI-MBC) were synthesized from the paper mill sludge biochar and used for the treatment of the synthetic and real effluent containing pentachlorophenol (PCP). During the synthesis of ZVI-MBC, NaBH4 was used as the reducing agent to reduce Fe(II) to Fe(0) and cetyltrimethylammonium bromide was added as surfactant. The effect of the molar ratio of FeSO4 to NaBH4, dose of the surfactant and the ZVI to biochar ratio on the PCP removal efficiency was… CONTINUE READING
