Removal of Bromide from Drinking Water Sources using Silver Impregnated Activated Carbon (SIAC): Understanding Br-SIAC Interactions
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this study was to progress the development of an adsorption process based on silver-impregnated activated carbon (SIAC) for the selective removal of bromide from drinking water. New approaches were described for a better understanding of the mechanisms of silver leaching from SIAC and for bromide removal, as well as on the role of natural organic matter. Cost effective removal of bromide would provide significant benefits for consumers of marginal quality source waters.

Effect of preconditioning on silver leaching and bromide removal properties of silver-impregnated activated carbon (SIAC)Rajaeian, B.; Allard, Sebastien; Joll, Cynthia; Heitz, Anna (2018)Silver impregnated activated carbon (SIAC) has been found to be effective in mitigating the formation of brominated-disinfection by products during drinking water treatment. However, there are still uncertainties regarding ...
Allard, Sebastien; Fouche, L.; Dick, Jeffrey; Heitz, Anna; Gunten, U. (2013)The oxidation of dissolved manganese(II) (Mn(II)) during chlorination is a relatively slow process which may lead to residual Mn(II) in treated drinking waters. Chemical Mn(II) oxidation is autocatalytic and consists of ...
