Abstract

This research was based on leachate water from landfill of municipal waste and on modified wastewater. Water was modified by the Method of Standard Addition of the following metals: Ba, Cu, Cd, Fe, Hg, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sn and Zn. Metals have been removed from the modified wastewater by method of co-precipitation with iron(III) oxide-hydroxide and with calcium carbonate and by adsorption to kaolinite, bentonite and calcium carbonate. The goal of the research was to explain and compare mechanisms of the most common processes for purification of wastewater by using low cost materials. Effectiveness of the processes was determined after the statistical analysis of the gathered data.
