  1. 1. Distribution and mobilization of heavy metals at an acid mine drainage-affected region, South China

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Tema Miljöförändring

    Author : Chen Luo; [2020]
    Keywords : acid mine drainage; arsenic; cadmium; geochemical modeling; heavy metals; lead; principal component analysis;

    Abstract : Dabaoshan Mine Site (DMS) is the biggest polymetallic mine in South China. The Hengshi River receives acid mine drain (AMD) waste leaching from the tailings pond and run-off from the treatment plant which flows into the Wengjiang River, Beijiang River, before discharging into the Pearl River.

  2. 2. Arsenite removal from contaminated water by different sorbent materials

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Kaijie Ding; [2020]
    Keywords : Arsenic contamination; adsorption; hydrotalcite; Mg−Al layered double hydroxide; amorphous aluminium hydroxide; amorphous titanium oxide; adsorption isotherm; co-existing anions;

    Abstract : Arsenic (As) contamination is a worldwide problem, and millions of people are suffering from it. There are two major inorganic forms of As in waters: arsenate(V) and arsenite(III), and adsorption to a sorbent material may be an efficient method to handle them. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chemical Stabilization of Arsenic in Contaminated Soil under Low Redox Conditions

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Eva Smedborn Pausson; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Remediation techniques for arsenic contaminated soil have previously focused mostly on the surface soil layers where aerobic conditions are prevalent. In this master thesis, chemical stabilization by adding zero-valent iron (Fe(0)) and calcium oxide (CaO) to an arsenic-contaminated soil under low redox conditions have been studied through up-flow percolation tests.
