A study of the effect of temperature on removal of pollutants from wastewater and water by adsorption technique
Author(s): Anamika Singh and Dr. Ashok Kumar
Abstract: Workers37-40 have recently become interested in studies on the heavy metal contamination of surface waterways and ground waters. This was caused by both environmental and industrial factors, as well as the fact that the majority of people got their drinking water from surface and ground water. Water pollution from many heavy metals, such as Mercury, Copper, Zinc, Lead, Nickel, Cobalt, Iron, Manganese, Cadmium, and Chromium, has significantly and globally increased over the past few decades. These heavy metals have long been a key source of worry regarding water pollution. The public's awareness of toxicity has grown following a number of incidents involving accidents brought on by heavy metal poisoning in aquatic environments. The Itai-Itai disease outbreak in Japan linked to the use of cadmium-rich river water, the discovery of inorganic mercury's conversion to methyl mercury and its bio-accumulation, the carcinogenicity of some inorganics and metals, and the potential for recycling wastewater to supplement drinking water in the near future are some of the other factors that have brought heavy metals back into the spotlight.Heavy metals are produced as waste in a variety of industrial processes, including the production of chemicals, fertilisers, leather, metal finishing (metal polishing and metal cleaning), metallurgical processes, electroplating, refractory units, textile and wood mills, and others. Metal concentrations in different industrial wastewaters can vary greatly in terms of quality and quantity. From pure metal particles in suspension to metal ions and complexes in solution, metals can be found in wastewater in a variety of forms. Metal-containing effluents are produced by a number of companies that process non-metallic materials.
