Ion Exchange The sludge sample from a wastewater treatment plant was used as a source of nitrifying USE OF ION EXCHANGE FOR REMOVAL OF AMMONIUM 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 90 MLVSS, mg/l.
mg N /l./hr. The presence of ammonia in wastewater from industry activities is an important environmental issue; therefore, an adsorption process is one viable alternative process that can be used to reduce concentrations, and accordingly, 10 resins and 6 zeolites were tested for the removal of ammonia from real wastewater ( to 8 mg/L NH 3 − N) containing other cations.
material that has high afﬁnity for ammonia ion (Gotvajn et al. Hence, methods capable of efﬁcient ammonia removal at reasonable cost are highly desired. Recently, ion-exchange has been applied in ammonia removal from aqueous solution due to the high removal efﬁciency and relatively simple operation (Bashir et al.
a; Lei et al. Ammonia removal by ion exchange using natural zeolites such as clinoptilolite is well known and there are a number of papers which describe the relevant capacity, equilibrium and column breakthrough characteristics.4–9Clinoptilolite is a silica-rich zeolite, which may have a slightly smaller ion-exchange.
of water receiving it. Thus, many domestic and industrial wastewater treatment plants are required to remove the ammonia before discharge of the treated water. As shown in the nitrification process equations, ammonia is first oxidized to nitrite ions, then the nitrite ions are oxidized to nitrate ions.
Demineralization of water is the removal of essentially all inorganic salts by ion exchange. In this process, strong acid cation resin in the hydrogen form converts dissolved salts into their corresponding acids, and strong base anion resin in the hydroxide form removes these acids.
By Joe Nye. The discharge of ammonia from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) has become a challenging issue throughout the United States. Nearly half of all states – 24 states plus the District of Columbia -- have adopted new rules modifying how ammonia is measured pursuant to the EPA's water quality criteria, which address total ammonia rather than unionized ammonia and provide more.
Nitrogen exists in municipal wastewater in the form of ammonia/ammonium which is a recoverable resource. Philipot J. and De Laminat G. () Nitrate removal by ion exchange. Get this from a library. Wastewater ammonia removal by ion exchange: Mobile pilot plant studies and process design with electrochemical renovation of regenerant [and] process design with air stripping renovation of regenerant.
[Pacific Northwest Laboratory. Wastewater Technology Fact Sheet Ammonia Stripping DESCRIPTION Ammonia stripping is a simple desorption process used to lower the ammonia content of a wastewater stream.
Some wastewaters contain large amounts of ammonia and/or nitrogen-containing compounds that may readily form ammonia. It is often easier and less expensive to remove nitrogen from. The use of conventional ion exchange resins for removal of ammonia from feed waters can be accomplished with normal cation exchange softeners.
However, softener resins have a very high preference for hardness (Ca2+ and Mg2+) ions over the NH 4 + ion and can “dump” high levels of ammonia before breaking on hardness. Ammonia removal from wastewater by ion exchange in the presence of organic contaminants Chemical or electrochemical techniques, followed by ion exchange, for recycle of textile dye wastewater Removal and recovery of boron from geothermal wastewater by selective ion exchange resins.
wastewater and groundwater, requested an assessment of the feasibility of a brine-based ion exchange (IE) system for the removal of ammonia from EIMWW, that would be simple to operate and could be deployed in remote areas. The following thesis consists of. It is evident from the literature survey articles that ion exchange, adsorption and biological technology are the most frequently studied for the treatment of ammonium ion wastewater.
Keywords: Ammonium wastewater, Removal methods, Review, Toxicity, Treatment Global J. Environ. Sci. Manage., 1(2):Spring DOI: /gjesm Municipal wastewater treatment plants can employ AmmEL-HC after sludge dewatering processes to prevent ammonia toxicity to the activated sludge process.
It is an excellent complimentary system for treatment facilities during cool weather conditions when nutrient removal in.
Bolan et al. () tested the effect of clinoptilolite on the removal of ammonium from wastewater streams. Prior to application, the mineral was treated with alkali solutions and the cation-exchange capacity increased by up to 74 percent; zeolite held up to – mg NH4+/g.
technologies such as ion-exchange, zeolite and membrane filtration, and electrocoagulation would work well compared to alternative treatment options.
For the highly complex matrix oil refining caustic solution, it was expected that a straightforward commonly used ammonia removal technology, such as breakpoint chlorination would work very well. Enhanced Ion-Exchange Resin for Ammonia Nitrogen Removal in Wastewater Treatment ip Partners’ Solution The ip Partners’ invention employs a proprietary technique to produce an ion-exchange resin with both high ammonia and ammonium ion adsorption.
The ion-exchange resin can be regenerated easily to be reused multiple times. Ion Exchange at the Millennium. Proceedings of IEX8.

Zeolites, naturally occurring aluminosilicate minerals, are used for the ion-exchange media. Zeolite minerals have been shown to have a high exchange capacity for various ions, including the ammonium ion, and are inexpensive and durable.
The removal of ammonium can be carried out by ion exchange from simulated wastewater. The study looks at the effect of organics upon ammonium ion exchange equilibrium uptake. They found very low ammonia removal of around 3–17%, but albuminoid nitrogen (nitrogen in the form of proteins) removal was appreciable (74–89%), and the addition of coagulant aids reduced the sludge volume to 42%.
Ion exchange resins and some cheaper alternative natural and waste materials can be used to replace high-cost materials. 1:LBattelle Northwest and South Tahoe Public Utility District, "Wastewater Ammonia Removal by Ion Exchange," U.S.
