Nutrient Adsorption onto Sawdust for the Treatment of Stormwater
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the sawdust of radiata pine wood was chosen as an adsorption medium to remove nutrients from stormwater. A series of batch and column experiments was carried out and a mass transfer correlation was developed to investigate the capability of sawdust in removing dissolved nutrients. The results indicate that sawdust is a promising adsorbent medium for nutrient removal. The findings of this research may be useful in designing biofiltration/bioretention systems for treating stormwater.
