Title: Decontamination of wastewater and leachates by magnetic particles
Issue Date: 2018-02-04
Abstract: The treatment of leachates as pollutant concentrated wastewaters, is still an open issue, andalthough several different methods are applied for this goal, we are still far way from obtaining lowcostand at the same time efficient processes. Even for wastewater and water, removal of specificcontaminants is far from being economical.Magnetic particles (nano or micron-sized), namely those based on iron oxides, have shown goodsorption capabilities, which may be useful for removal/concentration of pollutants/nutrients. Joiningthis sorption capabilities with their magnetic properties, and with potential functionalization, makesthe application of these particles for wastewater or leachate treatment very interesting, specially aswe may use magnetic separation methods to further remove, recover and reuse these particles.In this work we have tested three different kind of magnetic particles, in order toremove/concentrate organic matter (DQO reduction), Nitrogen (Total Nitrogen) and Phosporous(Total Phosporous), during several time periods, being successful in removing between 4 and 65% of them, depending on the controlled parameter, sorption time and type of particle.We have applied the same particles in three different water streams with different degrees ofpollution, so we would be able to analyze the pollutant concentration influence: these being water,wastewater and leachate. In Figure 1 we present as example the case of removal for wastewaterresultant from sludge centrifugation, by one of the three different magnetic particle systems wehave used.
