Phosphate removal from an aquatic environment was investigated using La(III)-, Ce(III)- and Fe(III)-loaded orange waste. The adsorption isotherm, the kinetics of adsorption and the effect of pH on the removal of phosphate have been examined. The % removal of phosphate using La(III)- and Ce(III)-loaded orange waste gel increases with increasing pH within the range of 5-7 but decreases when the pH is increased beyond this range. The equilibrium sorption was observed to be in accordance with… CONTINUE READING
