Comparison of Phosphorus Adsorption Capacity of Sludge Generated During the Total Phosphorus Removal Process in the Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants
서정인 Jung In Suh , 권대원 Dae Won Kwon
In this study, investigation was conducted to explore the phosphorus adsorption capacity of sludge(PS-sludge) generated during the total phosphorus(T-P) removal process of municipal wastewater treatment plants in order to evaluate their application potential as phosphorus adsorbent. The major metal contents of PS-sludges are Al, Fe, Mn, Ni, Zn and Cu. In addition, the sludges contained significant amount of T-P. The maximum phosphorus adsorption capacity is 8.38 mg-P/g. The experimental results indicate that PS-sludges show a strong phosphorus adsorption capacity and it could be utilized as a new type of adsorbent for phosphorus removal.
