Loess, Fly ash, Activated carbon, T-N, T-P
The present study is to explore the possibility of utilizing loess and fly ash as well as activated carbon for the adsorptive removal of T-N and T-P in water. Here, we investigated adsorption efficiency and Freundlich constants k and 1/n of each adsorbent. It was found that fly ash has not adsorptive capability for both T-N and T-P in water. Adsorption of T-N from water by loess has not occurred, but showed that adsorption efficiency for T-P reached approximately 57.5% at equilibrium time of 24 hr and room temperature. Activated carbon was shown to be an effective adsorbent for adsorption of T-N from water. Freundlich constant 1/n value of activated carbon represented that adsorptive capability of activated carbon is almost equivalent to loess.
