The project evaluated an innovative approach for removing inorganic contaminants from the liquid phase at Superfund Sites. In the adsorptive filtration process metals are collected by attachment to a thin layer of ferrihydrite (Iron Oxide) that has been immobilized on the surface of sand grains. The modification of the sand surface allows the grains to simultaneously adsorb soluable heavy metals and remove particulate metals by filtration from a wastewater. The metals studied were Cd, Cu, and Pb present at 0.5 or 5 mg/L each, in synthetic solutions.
