RI32 Removal of Metals from Laboratory Solutions and Landfill Leachate by Greensand Filters
Publication Type:
Report of Investigation
Publication Date:
Feb 1979
Authors:
Spoljaric, N., Crawford, W.A.
Abstract:

Distilled water spiked with heavy metal cations was passed at a rate of 2-4 ml/min through a filter composed of greensand containing about 80 percent glauconite. The capability of the greensand to trap metal cations is increased by prolonging the contact time between the leachate and the greensand. Flushing the charged greensand filter with water does not cause significant release of cations back into solution, suggesting that polluted greensand might be disposed in landfills without adding pollutants to either ground or surface water in the vicinity.
